As reported in the A&T, William Sheen (26) of Clarks Close in Ringwood, was sentenced in February to 28 months in prison for that burglary and others.

The court heard how Hopkins forced entry into the annex of the property and stole cash, cigarettes and several watches.

The 26-year-old was identified by a DNA match on blood left at the scene.

Police staff investigator Stephen Hortin, from the Operation Hawk Team, said: “I am pleased with the result of this sentencing, and that both Hopkins and Sheen will be spending time in prison for this burglary.

“Hampshire and the Isle of Wight Constabulary work hard to protect our communities from all types of offences.

"Burglaries are a deeply damaging offence for the victims, and we take them very seriously.

“Getting justice for this victim and having two burglars off the streets is a positive outcome for the communities we strive to protect.”
