A man who broke into homes across Cambridge has been jailed for five years.

In one incident, on 5 May 2023, Kevin Wall stole jewellery and £2,500 from a heavily pregnant woman in a home on Tweedsmuir Court.

Between 9 and 11 May 2023, the 34-year-old broke into a property on Crowland Way, and again made off with cash and jewellery.

On 12 June 2024, Wall was sentenced to five years in prison at Cambridge Crown Court.

Cambridgeshire Police Detective Constable Zoe Bramley:

"The victim in the burglary was heavily pregnant, just days away from giving birth.

"She was genuinely terrified. She didn’t know what Wall was capable of and feared for the safety of herself and her unborn baby.

"Burglary is not a victimless crime. It is traumatic to lose valuable and personal items from your home and the shock of having your property invaded while you are away can be deeply upsetting."
