A burglar, who police have described as callous and prolific, who carried out a burglary spree across Wolverhampton and Birmingham has been jailed.

Nicholas Mason , aged 44 from no fixed address, was responsible for 22 burglaries at homes between 31 May and 8 June last year.

He stole personal possessions, cars and bank cards which he then used to fraudulently buy items from shops.

He was apprehended on 8 June after being hit on the head by a homeowner who found Mason in his garden in East Park, Wolverhampton, with a laptop and phone.

Mason was arrested and charged with 25 counts of burglary. Following a nine week trial, where Mason represented himself, he was found guilty of 22 burglaries and sentenced to 10 years in prison.
