Conner Read and James Hearne of Romford jailed for more than 60 burglaries

Two Romford men were jailed for a total of more than 60 burglaries.

A Havering police press release said Conner Read, 19, of Highfield Road, and James Hearne, 21, of Turpin Avenue, received 16-month and 13-month sentences respectively at Basildon Crown Court last month after pleading guilty to a burglary in Gilbert Road in April, where they attacked a man and stole in excess of �1000 cash.

They admitted to the other offences during questioning and these were taken into consideration during sentencing.

DI Andy Brown of Havering police said: “These convictions, and those crimes that were taken into consideration, were obtained through the tireless endeavours of officers on within the CID [Criminal Investigation Department] at Havering.

“This is an outstanding example of officers revisiting investigations and obtaining closure for the victims.”
