A burglar who stole iPhones and iPads from a pawn shop and a driver who used a fake licence were among the criminals put behind bars in Suffolk this week.
Burglar caught by police on A14
Costa Kikkides, 46, was seen running away from the Trade Inn pawn brokers in Stowmarket with another man on November 9 last year, Ipswich Crown Court heard on Wednesday.
Following an earlier report about a suspicious vehicle, police were able to locate and stop a BMW on the A14 at Rougham.
Kikkides was driving the vehicle without a licence and police found a total of seven iPhones and four iPads, worth £2,719, in the car.
Kikkides, of Hart Road, Harlow, previously pleaded guilty to burglary, driving while disqualified and driving without insurance at Suffolk Magistrates' Court.

Kyreziu produced a Romanian driving licence. He explained to officers that he was born in Albania but was now a Romanian national, Gareth Hughes, prosecuting, told the court.
The driver's licence was then examined and found to be counterfeit, Mr Hughes said.
Kyreziu, of no fixed address in Ipswich, was charged with possessing false identity documents, driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence and driving without insurance.
He was jailed for 20 weeks by Recorder Guy Ayers.
Man punched nurse at hospital
Kai Brazier, 22, punched a computer screen and attacked a nurse at Colchester Hospital on November 16, 2019, Ipswich Crown Court heard.
He claimed to have no memory of the attack - but an expert's report concluded there was no medical reason why he would not remember.
Brazier had suffered whiplash earlier in the day after being involved in an accident while on a driving lesson.
While awaiting a CT scan, Brazier punched a computer screen, causing it to smash, before walking off down the corridor.
A male nurse then tried to calm him down, but Brazier punched the nurse on the top of the head, causing a large cut.
Brazier, of Arnold Drive, Colchester, pleaded guilty to assaulting an emergency worker and criminal damage.
He was jailed by Judge Emma Peters for 10 months.
