Serial crook was caught by police


Timothy Mcleod, 46, got away with a television set and a jacket, but left the hanky at the scene when he got it out to blow his nose.

The serial crook was caught by police after they examined the handkerchief and found traces of his DNA

Mcleod, who had a string of previous convictions for burglary, has now been jailed for two-and-a-half years.

PC Catherine Stacey, who investigated the case, said: “He was caught through DNA identification after he left a handkerchief in the kitchen.

“He had a hanky with him and he was stupid enough to leave it behind.”

Mcleod was on licence from a four-year prison sentence when the burglary took place in Portsmouth, Hants, on October 14 last year.
