A 18-year-old man has been jailed for nearly four years after pleading guilty to a string of offences in the Morecambe area.
Shane Brady, from Morecambe, appeared at Preston Crown Court on Tuesday, April 16 where he pleaded guilty to five burglaries, two attempted burglaries, four counts of handling stolen goods and two thefts.
The court heard how Brady targeted a number of elderly victims during his six-month burglary spree between September 2018 and February 2019.
Brady also pleaded guilty to four fraud offences and possession of cannabis.
He was sentenced to three years and nine months in prison.
