Perry Streamer, 19, of Widecombe Close, Romford, received two year sentences for the burglaries and one month for fraud, all to run concurrently, at Chelmsford Crown Court on Friday, April 6.

He previously admitted the offences at the same court on Wednesday, March 14.

At around 4.30am on Monday, May 5, a man woke up in Gloucester Road, Chelmsford, to find his front door had been opened and that his wallet, car keys and car had all been stolen.

Officers from Essex Police attended the scene and found Streamer’s palm print on a door frame.

Streamer then broke into a home in Mendip Road between 7pm on Wednesday, November 1, and 3am on Thursday, November 2, and stole two vehicles, handbags and a purse containing cash and bank cards.

He then used one of those stolen credit cards at 3.40am at the McDonald’s drive through in Gallows Corner and was clearly seen on CCTV ordering food while driving one of the stolen vehicles.

Essex Police officers arrested Streamer at around 1.45am on Wednesday, November 8, following a pursuit on the M25 in Brentwood.

Investigating officer Det Con Lauren Strangward, of Harlow CID, said: “Streamer broke into his victim’s homes as they slept and then drove away with their personal possessions and cars.

“He believed he was above the law and even used a stolen card to treat himself to fast food. It was only a matter of time until we located and arrested him.

“Streamer has shown no remorse for his actions and will now spend time locked in a prison cell.”
