High-tech security system snares burglars

Posted 01-10-13

The value of having up-to-date security facilities in your home was illustrated perfectly as two men burgling a house were identified and given jail sentences as a result. Ian Hogg, 39, and Gary French-Wells, 31, targeted a home in Middlesbrough and were caught on photograph heading up the stairs on May 31st. The security system proved somewhat priceless as the property's owner Paul Donovan had photos of the intruders sent to his mobile by the facility straight away. He sent the pictures to the police meaning they were able to react and arrive on the scene within just six minutes.

Hogg and French-Wells had 313 previous offences between them and were caught by officers at the house. Judge Howard Crowson cited the 'sophisticated alarm' that allowed the crime to be stopped in its tracks and commended landlord Donovan for his approach to securing his home.

As the burglars were caught it meant that property belonging to Donovan including jewellery and a flat-screen TV were saved. Hogg, a father-of-two who had 181 previous offences, was given two years and seven months in jail. French-Wells, who had 132 offences on his record and was given a suspended sentence for shoplifting a few months previously, was jailed for two years and two months.
