Ipswich Crown Court heard that Richardson had 26 previous convictions for 72 offences, including many assaults on police officers. He was jailed for 12 months.

Vincent, of Roundwood Road, Ipswich, had previously admitted one count of theft and eight counts of vehicle interference.

He was recorded on domestic CCTV in Acton, trying car door handles and peering inside any vehicles he found unlocked – making off with only a vacuum cleaner of very limited monetary value.

At the time of the offences, he was under curfew and serving two suspended prison sentences for shoplifting and burglary.
