AN Anglesey man has been jailed for 40 months after being sentenced for burglaries and theft.

Simon Lee McAllister appeared before the Crown Court in Caernarfon on Monday.

The 44-year-old Pentraeth resident was sentenced for high value burglaries and the theft of motor vehicles.

McAllister’s offences were carried out in the Bethesda, Y Ffor (Pwllheli) and Blaenau Ffestiniog areas during 2015 and 2016.

He received a sentence of 40 months imprisonment on Monday, April 16.

PC Carwyn ap Tomos of Gwynedd CID said: “It is reassuring and welcoming the Criminal Justice System shares our concern and imposes custodial sentences on those few intent on disrupting and disregarding the lives of others.

“Following these matters being reported, officers undertook a comprehensive investigation.

“McAllister was arrested and faced with overwhelming evidence he was charged and has now been subsequently sentenced.”

PC ap Thomas added:

“McAllister is a prolific offender and I hope his imprisonment provides our communities with reassurance that all offenders will be pursued, caught and placed before the courts.

“The community is a better place now he’s behind bars.”
