Merthyr House Breaker Jamie Price has been banged up for 4 years
Jamie Price, a notorious thief from Merthyr Tydfil, has been sent to jail for four years after a bloodstain linked him to housebreaking.
On March 24, he forced entry to a house in Gwaelod Y Garth, a quaint village near Taffs Well, while the occupier was out.
He searched the house and stole a jewellery box, which was later found discarded in bushes nearby.
A bloodstain in the address linked him via DNA to the crime.
Price, known well to both police and residents of Merthyr Tydfil to be a thief previously, had evaded capture on many occasions due to lack of evidence. Still, on this occasion, he couldn’t beat the law after having his DNA detected.
It left him no option to plead guilty to the offence, and he was thrown into jail by the judge for a 4-year term.
Now that residents have come to terms with having the notorious thief off the streets of Merthyr, they feel relieved.
A Merthyr resident told Global247news how he was delighted Price had been banged up, saying: ” He’s well known for being thieving scum, he’s a total scumbag, and it’s the likes of him who give this town a bad reputation, I hope he has a tough time in prison, he got caught this time, but we all know he’s done more.”
