Maryport criminal jailed for four and a half years

Tyler Wilson

A CRIMINAL who burgled a family’s home as they slept and who was also found to have made offers to supply cocaine has been jailed for four-and-a-half years.

Tyler Joseph Wilson, 22, snatched electrical equipment, a purse and the keys to a Renault Megane – which he also pinched – after breaking into a property at Maryport’s Ewanrigg Road on March 22. Wilson later made fraudulent use of a debit card to buy phone top-up credit, and had failed in a bid to withdraw cash.

Carlisle Crown Court heard how Wilson was also involved as a commercial premises at Great Broughton was burgled on October 12, when CCTV cameras were disabled and two physical layers of security broken through.

When Wilson was arrested, a phone was seized and it emerged he had offered to supply class A cocaine during a number of weeks around the turn of October.

At the crown court today (MON), having admitted nine charges – including two burglaries, the drugs supply crime, going equipped and fraud – Wilson, of Grasmere Terrace, Maryport, was jailed for a total of 54 months by Recorder Andrew Jefferies QC.

Recorder Jefferies had heard of Wilson’s 23 previous convictions, and of drugs playing a “large factor” in the defendant’s background.

Detective Constable, James Graham said: “Tyler Wilson showed blatant contempt for the law and his victims during his crime spree over the last seven months. I hope during his sentence Tyler has time to reflect on his unacceptable behaviour. I also hope that his sentence will reassure the community of Cumbria that such crimes are taken seriously and that offenders will be brought to justice.”
