Police had been called and found Reynolds in the car park, he proceeded to spit in the eyes of the arresting officer and was found in possession of cannabis.

Reynolds, of no fixed abode, refused to be interviewed but later pleaded guilty to four counts of burglary, assault by beating, assault emergency worker and possession of class B drugs.

He was sentenced to two and a half years in prison at Huntingdon Law Courts last Tuesday (29 November).

PC Malachi Creedon, who investigated, said: “Reynolds did not care about what he stole or who he hurt along the way, it was just about taking as much as he could.

“Tackling burglary is one of our priorities. We are working hard every day to bring offenders before the courts.”
