Burglar jailed for four years.

A MAN is behind bars after a series of burglaries.

James McPhail, 31, of no fixed address but from the Blyth area in Northumberland, appeared at Newcastle Crown Court on Thursday, February 13, for sentence after previously pleading guilty to two burglaries.

The burglaries took place at Princes Gardens and Gareston Close, in Blyth, both on January 8, 2014.

McPhail was sentenced to four years in prison when he appeared for sentence.

Neighbourhood Inspector Dave Harris said: "I'm pleased that McPhail will spend a significant period behind bars, ensuring Blyth is a safer place without him.

"We continue to carry out operations to target those involved in burglaries in the town to make sure they are put before the courts for their actions, and to prevent them from happening in the first place.

"A key part of Operation Soundwave is ensuring residents have crime prevention advice to keep their property safe."
