30 year old man sentenced after burglaries in Erith
A man has been jailed after a string of crimes in Erith including burglary of electrical items and jewellery.
Billy Durrant, 30, of no fixed address, was arrested in March and charged with burglary, theft and fraud.
Durrant was sentenced to three years and nine months in prison after he pleaded guilty to four counts of burglary, four counts of fraud and theft on October 2 at Inner London Crown Court.
The arrest was part of Operation Belmont, a two year covert operation which led to the arrests of 73 people this year.
Detective Chief Inspector Gary Holmes from Bexley CID said: “Operation Belmont has been a huge success. This sentence is just one of a number of convictions which have resulted in lengthy prison sentences.”
