Burglar who left ID near St Neots crime scene sentenced
A BURGLAR who left an identity card near the shop he broke into has been given a suspended prison sentence.
Scott Mobbs broke into a store building at the back of One Stop, in Eaton Ford, at about 2.30am on May 4.
The day before, the manager noticed someone had tried to break into the store and its wooden roof was repaired.
Cambridgeshire police were alerted by the automatic alarm and heard voices nearby when they arrived.
After searching the area, officers found two backpacks, one containing gloves, balaclavas, tools, alcohol, milk and bread. The other contained tracksuits and a jacket – with Mobbs’ ID in it.
They also found about �360 of items discarded on the roof.
On October 25, the 21-year-old admitted burglary and theft of more than �420 of items.
