PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A career criminal brought on the crocodile tears to try and fool cops who were arresting him for burglary - before he was tasered after trying to run away. 'Habitual' burglar Sean Gavin, 29, was caught when his victim was alerted by her phone that her house had been broken into whilst she was at work. The police were called and found Gavin and a teenager had broken into the Rochdale house via the patio doors before ransacking it. In body cam footage played to Minshull Street Crown Court, the two officers made their way to the garage armed with tasers, where they found the two males cowering in the corner.

This was a ‘ruse’ as he pushed past both officers in an attempt to run away, prosecutors said. However, he was quickly brought down as one of the officers deployed a taser, and arrested him. Gavin was jailed today (August 3) for four years after admitting burglary. Prosecuting, Justin Hayhoe said the victim went to work on June 17 this year, leaving her gated house on Bury New Road protected by security cameras and an alarm system. Whilst she was at work she received a notification that the alarm system had been activated. “Looking to the CCTV cameras inside the house, she could hear male voices and banging, and immediately contacted the police,” Mr Hayhoe said. “Police officers arrived and went to the rear of the property and discovered they had entered through the patio door as the lock was forced.” Sean Gavin was jailed for four years In finding Gavin in the garage, the officers told him to get on the ground but he began to try and persuade them that he was ‘sorry and remorseful for what he did’, the prosecutor continued. “This was a ruse to knock them off guard and push past them to get away. He was caught after officers deployed a taser,” he said. After searching them both, on Gavin they found a balaclava and gloves, and on the youth they found mole grips.

. Mr Hayhoe added this was a ‘joint enterprise’ and was a ‘planned and targeted burglary’. In a victim personal statement, the woman said she is worried about what will happen in the future. “This was my personal home where I am supposed to feel safe, but at the moment I don’t feel safe in my own home,” she added. Gavin was said to have 30 previous convictions for offences of burglary and attempted burglary since he began offending as a youth. At the time of these offences, he was subject to licence conditions. Mitigating for Gavin, Kay Driver said her client was abandoned by his mum at 13 and lived on sofas whilst ‘supporting himself by committing crime’. “He met a group of youths in similar circumstances and learnt how to earn a living in that way,” she said. “He has unresolved issues as a result of his childhood and has had to be moved out of his home address. He expresses his remorse and wishes to apologise to the victim.” Sentencing, Recorder Patrick Harrington said: “You are a habitual burglar. For an under 30-year-old, your record is appalling. “I find this was a deliberate target of a premise where you thought would be significant spoils if successful. I see there is nothing to suggest any of these previous sentences of imprisonment have stopped you from burgling.” Gavin, of Princeville Street, Bradford, was jailed for four years.
