Burglar who targeted Denton homes jailed

A burglar who targeted homes in Denton has been jailed for 20 months. 

Stephen Williams, of Catherine Street West in Denton, was sentenced at Minshull Street Crown Court for two burglaries and three attempted burglaries - all committed in the Denton area in the early hours of 28 November 2020. 

The 49-year-old has been given a 20-month concurrent sentence. 

Williams had been on remand since being charged. 

Inspector Lee Derbyshire, of Greater Manchester Police's Tameside North and East Team, said: "There was lots of hard work from your relentless Volume Crime Team (led by Sergeant Goddard) and district colleagues to secure this conviction.

"Different priorities come and go but putting burglars in prison is what people join the police for, now we quickly move on to getting the next one."
