KING’S LYNN: DNA lands thief in prison
Blood left at the scene of a car break-in landed “clumsy” Janis Lazdans with an eight-week prison sentence.
Lazdans, of Valingers Road, Lynn, broke into Anthony Crowder’s company vehicle and stole more than £1,000 worth of items just days after being released from jail, Lynn magistrates were told.
The 30-year-old has since been recalled to prison and he appeared at court on Friday in custody.
The court also heard the Immigration Service is looking into deporting him back to Lithuania.
Lazdans admitted stealing a laptop, satellite navigation system, mobile phone and other items when he broke into the car between January 4 and 6.
He also admitted breaching a 12-month conditional discharge imposed in March last year for an offence of fraud.
Prosecuting, Josephine Jones said Mr Crowder left his vehicle parked in Seven Sisters Close, Lynn, and noticed it had been broken into when he returned two days later.
She said: “Scenes of crime officers attended and they found evidence of blood. The DNA matched the defendant.”
In mitigation, Giles Debenham said: “This was an impulsive offence, there was no evidence of pre-planning, and it was certainly clumsy in execution.”
