A DRUG addict who broke into a house while the owners were away on holiday has been jailed for two years.

Trevor Bemrose, 37, of Bramford Road, Ipswich, was arrested after a spot of blood on a curtain hanging at a broken kitchen window in the house was found to match his.

An untidy search had been made of the premises in Bulwer Road, Ipswich and among more than £3,000 worth of goods stolen were a computer, two video recorders, compact discs, stereo equipment and a

television, Ipswich Crown Court heard.

None of the stolen property was recovered and the house owners told the police they had been very upset by the burglary, said Peter Gair, prosecuting.

Bemrose, admitted burglary and two offences of shoplifting.

Jailing him for two years Judge Nicholas Beddard said Bemrose had a prolific record.

He had been appearing in courts since he was 17 and every sentencing option, ranging from conditional discharges to prison, had been tried by the courts. "Nothing has stopped your offending," said the judge.

He said that householders and shops deserved a rest from him.

Hugh Vass for Bemrose said his client had no recollection of the burglary as he had been abusing drugs and alcohol at the time.
