Bur­glar jailed for three years

Young man pleaded guilty to 10 of­fences

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

Daniel McEwen, 21, was sen­tenced at Isle­worth Crown Court on Wed­nes­day, March 18 for bur­gling a house in Hin­ton Road on Fe­bru­ary 17, hav­ing pleaded guilty on the day of the of­fence.

The judge also took into ac­count an­other nine bur­glar­ies McEwen had com­mit­ted in the area late last year.

McEwen, of no fixed ad­dress, was given three years and four months im­pris­on­ment.

Of­fi­cers ar­rested him in a proac­tive, in­tel­li­gence-led op­er­a­tion in Uxbridge, on Fe­bru­ary 19.

De­tec­tive Constable Wes­ley John­son, of the Metropoli­tan Po­lice, said: “The swift and strong ac­tion taken against McEwen is a clear ex­am­ple of how our polic­ing team works tire­lessly to pur­sue of­fend­ers, bring them to jus­tice, pro­tect the com­mu­nity and crime.

“McEwen was given no other op­tion then to plead guilty to the of­fence as a re­sult of the over­whelm­ingly strong ev­i­dence brought be­fore the courts.”
