A burglar who targeted a house in Halifax has been jailed for over four and a half years.
Amir Khan, 30, from Toller Lane, Bradford, was jailed at Bradford Crown Court after burgling a property on School Lane in the early hours of 4 January.
After forcing entry into the house at around 4.55am, Khan and a number of other people fled the area with two of the family’s cars – a Seat and a Mercedes.
Officers saw the vehicles leaving the property and tracked the Mercedes to a car park in Brighouse where Khan was arrested.
He was jailed yesterday (5 January) for 56 months for burglary.
Following sentencing, Detective Inspector Gary Stephenson said: “Khan travelled into Halifax to commit burglary, and he has now received a considerable prison sentence for that offence.
“Our officers are committed to reducing the number of residential burglaries in Calderdale and we will continue to robustly investigate all offences.”
