A man who burgled and attacked a Highgate homeowner has been jailed.
Last July Kevin Braidich, 21, was arrested by officers helped by “quick thinking” members of the public, following a burglary in Highgate.
After his arrest, Braidich was linked by forensics to a string of burglaries which had taken place between June 2019 to July 2020 – including in Barnes, Chelsea and Surrey.
In total, the value of the goods he stole was around £100,000, as the burglar targeted jewellery and watches.
On Monday (June 7), Braidich, of no fixed address, was sentenced at Kingston Crown Court to five-and-a-half years in prison for five counts of burglary.
Detective Constable Roisin Mulvihill, of the Metropolitan Police's North Area Command, said: “This man had a total disregard for other people’s property.
“His brazen acts of theft have caused great distress to his victims and I am pleased that he was brought to justice and received a lengthy sentence that his criminal acts deserved.”
