Detective Constable Emma Calow, investigating officer, said: "Burglary is a very disturbing crime for victims. These two men broke into a series of homes over a few days with apparently little regard for the occupants and their property. I hope for those victims that these jail sentences mean they can begin to draw a line under these incidents."
