Brighton homeless man jailed for double burglary at restaurant

A man who broke into two neighboring restaurants in one city has been arrested.

James Jackson, 35, broke into two restaurants in Bartholomew Square in Brighton overnight on October 19.

Police received a report of a break-in at a restaurant on Thursday 20 October.

CCTV, received shortly thereafter, showed an unknown suspect identified as Jackson.

Attempts were made to locate and arrest him, but he could not be located.

On Wednesday October 26, police received a report of a second break-in that had taken place overnight at another restaurant in Bartholomew Square, Brighton.

Officers attended on October 26 and reviewed CCTV, which showed a suspect re-identified as Jackson.

Jackson was known to be sleeping in a tent in Bartholomew Square and was found there the same day, wearing the same clothing as on CCTV and in possession of several items stolen during the burglary.

He was arrested and subsequently charged with two other burglaries as an apartment.

Jackson was found guilty on both counts by Brighton Magistrates’ Court on Thursday 27 October.

He was detained for four months.

“Sussex Police understand the impact a burglary has on victims not only financially but also emotionally through the loss of sentimental items and the feeling of hurt,” said Detective Sergeant Joanne Benton.

“Tackling white-collar crime is a priority in Brighton and Hove and we have a significant engagement with local residents and the business community to prevent crime and bring offenders to justice.

“Together with our partners in the Business Crime Reduction Partnership and the Business Improvement District, we have implemented a number of measures to simplify reporting crime, share information and improve the quality of evidence gathering.” Brighton homeless man jailed for double burglary at restaurant
