A burglar who tried to evade police but was caught following a pursuit has been jailed for three years.
Robert Davanzo, 24, was arrested after committing three burglaries in one day.
In the first incident, two men knocked on the door of a house in Spring Sedge Close, Stanway, at 12.45pm on February 2. The owner did not answer, but a few minutes later saw them in her garden and one of the men opening the back door.
They fled empty-handed when she screamed.
