Gosport Man Who Admitted Burglary Sentenced to Three Years in Prison

Published: 5th December 2018 22:05

A 35 year-old man from Gosport who admitted burglary and two counts of attempted burglary at Portsmouth Crown Court has been sentenced to a total of three years in prison.

During the early hours of Sunday 1 July 2018, Eamon Reade of no fixed address in the Gosport area broke the glazing in the front door of a home on Stoke Road in Gosport. This woke the homeowner, who a short time later noticed Reade acting suspiciously outside a neighbouring property where a window had been forced open. Reade’s blood was later found on the window. Reade was then seen later in the day in the same area and then kicked in the front door of the first property he had tried to burgle. The homeowner was there at the time and Reade was chased away by someone from inside the property. Nothing was taken. 

On Monday 3 December at Portsmouth Crown Court Reade admitted three offences and was sentenced to; twenty-seven months in prison for burglary, nine months in prison to be served concurrently to the first count for attempting to burgle, and nine months in prison to be served consecutively to the other two counts for attempting to burgle. Reade will serve a total of three years in prison.

Investigating officer DC Martin Alderton said: “The sentence reflects the seriousness of Eamon Reade’s offending. We will undertake an investigation and secure a conviction like this for these types of incidents wherever possible”.
