A laptop, wallet and jewellery box were stolen from the Woburn Close house while several computer games were taken from Charles Street.

The 30-year-old, of Riber Avenue, Somercotes, was sentenced to six months concurrent for taking diesel from vehicles at a building site in Greenhill Lane, Leabrooks in the same month.

The pair were sentenced at Derby Crown Court on Tuesday, February 14.
