Casey, of no fixed address, appeared at Sheffield Crown Court on Monday and has been jailed for 18 months.

The victim contacted PC Angela Rollett to thank her for her continued support, saying how relieved she was that the matter — dating back to February 2019 — did not require a trial.

“This has been a lengthy process and I’m so grateful for the support the victim has given the investigation, without her continued cooperation we simply wouldn’t have got this result.

“The victim and I worked together straight away to create an e-fit of Casey, and he was picked out of an ID parade after being circulated as wanted in June 2019.

“We know burglary is a blight on our communities, but I want to assure people that we do investigate offences, support victims and work tirelessly to get offenders behind bars.”
