  • Lee Eary, 44, of Wood Lane End in Hemel Hempstead, has been jailed for nearly four years

  • He was previously convicted of three counts of attempted burglary and one count of vehicle interference

  • The offences were committed in Leverstock Green, overnight between 17 April and 18 April this year

A man has been sentenced to nearly four years in prison for a number of offences in Hemel Hempstead.

Lee Eary, of Wood Lane End, Hemel Hempstead, was jailed for a total of three years and ten weeks after appearing at Luton Crown Court.

In May this year, Eary was convicted of three counts of attempted burglary and one count of vehicle interference.

The offences were in breach of two separate Suspended Sentence Orders (SSOs) previously imposed on the 44-year-old.

Eary committed them all overnight between Saturday 17 April and Sunday 18 April this year in the Leverstock Green area of the town.

In many of the incidents the victims’ doorbell cameras captured Eary trying and failing to gain access to their properties and vehicles, providing officers with vital evidence.

Following the sentencing on Tuesday 20 July, investigating officer PC Sarah Scanlon said: “Eary has shown us that he has no qualms about stealing from hard-working people in the community.

“I am pleased he has received a custodial sentence for his crimes, meaning residents in Hemel Hempstead no longer have to worry about being targeted by Eary.

“This case is an excellent example of doorbell cameras’ value in protecting your property, as the footage often provides police and partners with evidence in our investigations.”
