Davies was found guilty of burglary at a residential address in Hazelbank Road, Chertsey on Thursday, 26 December 2013. He also admitted to committing 84 other burglary offences which were taken into account by the court when sentencing.
Woking Neighbourhood Commander John Davies, said: “Sam Davies was a prolific offender who targeted homes predominantly across the north and west of the county – many of which were in the Woking area.
“Burglary is not a victimless crime. It is a deeply upsetting intrusion into people’s lives and can take some length of time for those affected to recover from. The custodial sentence is a positive outcome which reflects the severity of his actions.
“This case also highlights the excellent joint working practices of officers across the county to collate vital information and evidence necessary to convict guilty suspects.
“I hope the fact that Davies has received an imprisonment sentence will deter would be offenders and reinforces the message that such criminal activity will not be tolerated in Surrey and we will continue to do all we can to bring criminals to justice.”
