[A] MAN has been sent to prison after property pinched during a Carlisle burglary was found at his home.
Kane Queen, 23, was sentenced at the city’s crown court today (WED) having pleaded guilty to a charge of handling stolen goods.
Judge Tony Lancaster was told a Clarins bag and several miniature bottles of alcohol were taken when a woman’s home was burgled while she slept.
This bag and the booze were located by police who went to Queen’s home on 24th August and carried out a search.
Although he told officers “you can get them bags from anywhere”, the woman’s DNA was later found on the Clarins product, which she also confirmed was hers.
It was stressed there was no evidence linking him to the break-in which, the court heard, had led to the shocked victim undergoing counselling.
However, Queen, of Holywell Crescent, Botcherby, Carlisle, was said to have 22 criminal convictions for theft and dishonesty.
And for his latest offence, he was given an eight-month jail sentence by Judge Lancaster.
