He was arrested on June 5 and subsequently charged the same day.

Detective Inspector Gary Stephenson, of Calderdale CID, said: “We are pleased that justice has been brought and we hope that the outcome provides some reassurance to the victims, but also to the local residents of Todmorden and surrounding areas.

“Our detectives are committed to reducing burglaries and will continue to robustly investigate all offences.”
