From the courts
Colin Kennerk, 59-years-old of Cambridge Street, Rugby, has been sentenced to two and a half years in prison for burglary on 28 July at Warwick Crown Court.
In the early morning of Wednesday 10 May 2023, Kennerk, along with an accomplice entered a house on Cambridge Street through the front door.
The two then proceeded to grab a laptop, a wallet, a purse, a mobile phone, and a bottle of wine before exiting the premises.
The victims were woken up by the sound of their dog barking, and on discovering the missing items, rang the police.
On arrival, officers conducted a house-to-house inquiry, and obtained footage from a neighbour’s smart doorbell.
Reviewing the footage, the officers saw Kennerk wearing a distinct pair of trainers travelling both in the direction of the offence location, and back carrying items.
Kennerk was then arrested at his house on Cambridge Street the same morning less than three hours later.
Stolen property belonging to the victims was found after a search of his house.
Colin Kennerk pleaded guilty to the offence of burglary of a dwelling on 16 June 2023.
Police Constable Max Warren said “This is a great outcome for us – in one evening, we were able to gather evidence, identify suspects, and make arrests which have led to a solid conviction.
“Thank you to the local community who provided us with the vital footage that we needed to find the suspects and return the victims’ property.”
