Public to get 'a rest' from burglar.

A BURGLAR from Wrexham - who has previous convictions for more than 60 offences at the age of 23 - has been jailed for two years for burglary at a house in Llandudno.

A crown court judge told Aaron Dean McKenzie, 23, it was time the public were given a proper rest from him.

He was arrested after his finger print was found at the burgled premises in Caroline Road in Llandudno, where a large amount of property including a PS5,000 VW Transporter were stolen.

The burglars had stolen the keys to the vehicle, which was later found abandoned on waste ground in Wrexham, Mold Crown Court was told.

McKenzie of Coed Aben in Wrexham, was identified after his finger print was found on a CD. Judge Niclas Parry told him that in February of this year he committed a burglary in the early hours while two people slept in their beds.

Various valuable items had been taken including vehicle keys and the vehicle had been taken and later left abandoned.

The victims had been left numbed by the burglary in their home. Judge Parry said the offence was aggravated by his shocking criminal record.

He had 65 previous convictions at the age of 23 and had only recently been released from custody. When arrested he was abusive and spat at officers although he later apologised. "The time has come for the public to be given a proper rest from you," the judge said.

Ceri Evans, defending, said that her client had a lengthy record but his previous burglary went back ten years to the time when he was aged 13. He accepted he would receive a lengthy prison term and there had been a change in his attitude.
