TWO brothers have been jailed for preying on vulnerable elderly people in burglaries.

Liam and Danny Walsh targeted victims, aged from late 70s to early 90s, across Chesterfield between August 28 and September 2.

Det Insp Mark Huckerby said: “Danny and Liam Walsh both worked for a nationwide double glazing company and used their cover to gain legitimate entry into people’s homes.

“While one pretended to measure up replacement windows the second took property from other rooms.

“They preyed on vulnerable people and I’m pleased they have both been given custodial sentences.”

Liam, 23, from Meersbrook, Sheffield, was sentenced to four years in prison. He pleaded guilty to four offences and had eight others taken into consideration at Derby Crown Court.

Danny Walsh, 21, of Derby Road, Chesterfield, pleaded guilty to five offences and was sentenced to two years imprisonment.
