BREAKING and entering a Bomaderry flat resulted in a 12-month jail sentence for a Bomaderry man.
Some time between November 4 and 8 last year, Michael James Keevers, 29, of the Princes Highway, forced a lock on a window of the unit.
Once inside he stole a shower head, removed three internal doors and placed them against walls, removed kitchen cupboard doors, a cooktop, oven door and a toilet and basin in the bathroom causing water to flood the unit. He removed the mirror and put it in the bathtub and stole a window lock and flyscreen.
On November 11 a forensic examination of the scene found Keevers’ hand prints and he was arrested on December 5.
Keevers denied breaking in, saying he had done so with the permission of the owner.
In Nowra Local Court, Keever’s sentence also covered charges of larceny, disposing stolen property and two charges of having goods suspected of being stolen over a copper cable robbery from a Numbaa dairy farm in November and possession of a stolen angle grinder and chainsaw.
He also had a suspended sentence for a variety of drugs and weapons charges converted into a seven-month jail sentence.
