A woman who raided a house and a shed and stole a laptop containing a masters’ degree student’s work, a mobile phone plus two kettles and an electric dog has been jailed for three years.
Elona Green, 34, was high on heroin, crack and diazepam when she went on a burgling spree in Deepdale, Preston, Lancashire, on July 4. At around 7am a man heard noises outside his home and discovered that his shed had been broken into.
He viewed his CCTV and saw Green in his garden, having stolen two kettles and a two-foot large electric dog. The footage also showed Green, of Deepdale, trying the front door of a neighbouring property, which was locked. A few doors down, a neighbour came face-to-face with Green in her hallway, after leaving the front door unlocked for the home help she was expecting.
When she asked Green if she was from the care company, Green said she was but left shortly after, taking a laptop and mobile phone which were in the hallway. Green pleaded guilty to two counts of burglary and a count of attempted burglary when she appeared at Preston Crown Court.
