Daniel Turner

Officer in case, DC Zarcone of Rugby Police stated:

"Mitchell and Turner were arrested by officers in the Norton Leys area on Rugby on 2 October and found to be in possession of various items of jewellery, stamps and collectors' coins.

"These items were suspected of being taken from a property in Clifton-upon-Dunsmore so the victim was contacted. They were able to identify the items as their property, which included jewellery of sentimental value.  

"Further investigations by officers matched footprints taken from the scene of the South Road burglary to trainers seized from one of the suspects.

On the sentencing, he added:

"I welcome the result of the investigation and hope that the victim can take some comfort that justice has been done.

"Quick work by PC Spencer to arrest the suspects and a dedicated effort by the investigating team helped to secure these convictions and take two burglars off the streets of Rugby."

"I would like to remind people to keep windows and doors locked at all times and valuables out of sight, and to visit the Warwickshire Police website for advice on home security:"
