The burglar, of Hyacinth Road, Rochester, was jailed after 17 premises were targeted during a five-month crime spree.

Winnett broke into 10 homes, attempted to burgle six more and also illegally entered a business premises between October 21, 2019 and February 10, 2020.

Members of the public were urged to contact the police if they saw Winnett, who was believed to be in the Sheppey area.

Officers have since confirmed an arrest has been made, and they are no longer seeking information to help find him.
