On 31 May 2020, Cabey attempted to break into a house on Manor Park Avenue, Princes Risborough, by smashing a window using a brick.

It is believed he was disturbed by a neighbour who heard the breaking glass. Cabey was then subsequently identified via CCTV. Nothing was taken from the property.

He was arrested on 5 June and then charged on 6 June.

Investigating officer, PC Richard Tulloch, based at High Wycombe police station, said: “Cabey used the rail network to travel some considerable distance to commit this offence.

“I hope his conviction sends a message to those who would look to inflict these type of crimes upon innocent people that Thames Valley Police will not tolerate offences of this nature and seek to bring offenders to justice”
