Billy Beeney, 21, of no fixed address, appeared at Lewes Crown Court on Friday, June 9 and pleaded guilty to three counts of burglary at a property in Wick Farm Road on February 24, March 3 and March 10 this year.

According to police, the court heard Beeney got into the flat on three separate occasions when he knew the occupants would be out.

He stole £200 cash, a PlayStation console and PlayStation games from the house.

He was linked forensically to the burglaries.

Detective Constable Beccy Hopkins said: “Beeney thought he could help himself to cash and computer games and a console when the occupants were out.

“However his actions led to him being arrested and charged and eventually imprisoned.”
