Man Jailed For Distraction Burglaries

Jamie Price's victims were in their 80's.

A south Wales man has been sentenced to more than three years behind bars for a number of distraction burglaries involving elderly people.

20 year old Jamie Price was sentenced at Swansea Crown Court yesterday after targeting 3 victims in their 80's.

Detectives utilised CCTV to piece together who was responsible and the investigation was significantly helped by a neighbour who followed Price as she thought he was suspicious and saw him dispose of a crucial piece of evidence.

DCI Helen Woodward said: "Price targeted some of our very vulnerable members of our communities. Thanks to a thorough investigation and the quick thinking of a neighbour he has today been jailed.

"I would like to thank the neighbour for their help and remind people how important it is to look out for their elderly neighbours."
