A burglar who stole a boat, tractor and caravan from properties across Fenland has been jailed.

Andrew Yallop, 21, of King Street, Wisbech, pleaded guilty to four break-ins across Norfolk at Norwich Crown Court on Friday last week.

His Fenland offences spanned several months across March, Elm and Wisbech with his haul including three vans, two outboard boat engines, a John Deere tractor, caravan, dinghy and syphoned diesel.

He helped himself to jewellery, televisions and cash from four homes in Norfolk.

In total he admitted four burglaries and asked for a further 80 offences to be taken into consideration, including 12 in the Fenland area.

He has been jailed for a total of three-and-a-half years.

Detective Constable Chris Smith is pleased with the news.

He said: “Yallop is a prolific offender who targeted homes and businesses over a huge area.

“His actions have caused disruption to a number of businesses and brought misery to victims across Fenland, Norfolk and other neighbouring counties.

“We’re pleased he has now been brought to justice.”
