A BURGLAR who stole jewellery from a 91-year-old’s bedside as she slept has been jailed for three years.

Connor Reeve, 19, of Wyckham Court, Buckland Road, Childswickham, Broadway appeared at Worcester Crown Court today (Tuesday) to be sentenced.

He also targeted properties in Lansdowne Street in Worcester on June 21 and the city’s Tearne Street on October 7.

A West Mercia Police spokesperson said:

“Burglary brings such upset and unsettlement to victims.




“I am pleased with the sentence Mr Reeve has received.

“Our team supported the victims through this traumatic experience.

“One of which was a 91-year-old lady whose house was burgled whilst she was asleep and Mr Reeve stole jewellery from her bedside table next to her”.
