A man who was part of a professional gang which broke into a computer distribution company in Ipswich and stole goods worth £62,000 has been jailed for two years.
Stefan Neagu was arrested by police after his DNA was found on a ladder which was left at the scene of the break-in at Getech Ltd, in Knightsdale Road, in October last year, Ipswich Crown Court heard.
Stefan Neagu, 41, of Coventry, admitted burglary at Getech and an attempted burglary of a warehouse in the Slough area.
Sentencing, Judge Martyn Levett said Neagu had been part of a group of professional burglars.
Lynne Shirley, for Neagu, said her client had become involved in the burglaries because he was desperate to send money back to Romania to his wife and four children. She said he had been served with deportation papers by the Home Office.
