A prolific burglar who targeted homes in addresses in Greenwich and Bromley has been jailed for four years at Woolwich Crown Court.

38 year old Mark Robertson from Ravens Way, Blackheath was convicted by the jury of burglary and he pleaded guilty to two more offences.

He had a total of 45 previous convictions for burglary and theft.

At the time of his arrest in September 2014 he was still on licence after being released from a four year jail term for eight burglary offences.

One of his victims was an 89-year-old woman living in Manor Way, Blackheath.

She lost her handbag containing cash and bankcards that Robertson could be seen on CCTV at the Lee Green post office and then at the ATM at Sainsburys in Lee Green.

Detective Constable Carly Walker from Greenwich Police’s Serious Acquisitive Crime Unit said:

Robertson is a prolific criminal who through his offending has caused his victims a great deal of distress. The sentence handed down today will ensure our communities are protected from further offending by him. We will continue to target those responsible for burglary across the borough.
