DETECTIVES have welcomed the sentencing of a burglar who was convicted after a trial at Liverpool Crown Court.

Stephen Finney, 26, of no fixed address, was jailed for 18-months for a burglary offence.

A jury had found Finney guilty of a burglary at an address on Broad Oak Road, Parr in July 2018.

Detective Constable Roy Waller said: “We know that being the victim of a burglary can have a massive and lasting effect, and we work day in day out to bring those offenders responsible for this type of crime, to justice.

"We will continue to work, to carry out positive action and identify those responsible so we can carry on taking them off the streets.”
