A burglar was caught red-handed after his DNA matches with the cube of cheese. He targeted his ex-girlfriend’s mother home for a ‘revenge attack’ and got caught.
29-years old Jilted Jamie mistakenly left a spot on the cheese cube, when he went to steal Red Leicester block from the Cardiff home.
The court heard the statement of the victim, Lynn Patterson, who found cheese and broken glass all over the floor. Canton’s Simmonds admitted his guilt and for 16months was sentenced in prison.
Rachel Knight, the prosecutor described the crime as a ‘revenge attack’. He clarifies it by saying that the burglary was not getting his desired amount of attention from his ex-girlfriend Molly Patterson so did this incident.
“Crude and unsophisticated”
Molly Patterson said, “There is an element of targeting, of planning and he was in dispute with the family at the time.” She added, “I feel guilty because I think he did this to get back at me and feel like it’s my fault. I’m sorry this has happened to my mother.”
However, defending the statement, Peter Wormald says the offense as “crude and unsophisticated.”
In reference to the all the statement happened in the court, Judge Eleri Rees ordered Simmonds, not to make any further contacts with the victim’s family and never to perform such unlawful acts. Addressing the guilt, she says, “You have an awful record and you have become a petty thief.”
