Emilio Romano, from Hull, was charged with a number of hanoi burglaries where high value cars were stolen during a well-planned and organised enterprise in February 2019.

This relates to burglaries from Bellfield Drive in Willerby, Fairfield Avenue in Kirkella, Wolfreton Lane in Willerby, Westland Road in Kirkella and Annandale Road in Kirkella.

Mr Romano, 20, also pleaded guilty to three commercial burglaries in Hornsea, Burshill and Brandeburton which all occurred in January 2019.

He received three years imprisonment to run concurrent against the dwelling burglaries.

To add to his sentence, the 20-year-old pleaded guilty to the supply of drugs which resulted in a further three years behind bars, giving him a total term of eight years imprisonment.

Detective Sergeant Andy Bradley said: “I am very pleased with the sentence given out to Mr Romano and I hope that this sentence brings some peace to the victims now that Romano has been locked up.

“At Humberside Police we dedicate a lot of our resources to burglary related crimes as it’s important that everyone feels safe in their own homes.“These crimes can leave victims feeling very unsettled and can greatly affect residents.

“If you are ever in a situation where you are being burgled, please call 999.

“Or, if a burglary has already taken place, call 101 to report and we’ll make sure the report goes to the right teams who can look into the incident further.”
