A man has been jailed after admitting a string of residential burglaries.

Bungling unemployed Romanian national Constantin-Tiberiu Gheorge, 39, of no fixed address, left DNA at every single one of the 31 addresses he burgled across London, Kent and Essex, including one in Ilford.

He was sentenced to eight years in jail at Snaresbrook Crown Court yesterday after pleading guilty to all offences on May 20.

According to police, traces of Gheorge's blood appeared at an address in Kingswood Road, Ilford, which was burgled on October 2 last year. 

He was arrested on April 15 in Barking town centre and taken into custody where his fingerprints also linked him to an additional 10 burglaries.

Detective Sergeant Brett Hagen from the north east detections team, described Gheorge as "one of the most prolific and yet one of the most careless burglars" he has ever encountered.

He added: "He has committed numerous offences across London, Kent and Essex with a blatant disregard for the victims and police alike.

"It is worth considering that for every one of these offences there was at least one victim who had to deal with the effects of becoming a victim of crime, and where burglary is concerned the lasting effects run far deeper than a loss of property."

Multiply this mini-crime wave by a few thousand and you can see why UKIP have beaten the main parties. People have real concerns about cases like this as these people are entitled to wander into the UK without any background checks, with a criminal record in their own country going undetected. The police have enough demands with our own crooks let alone thousands from abroad adding to their workload.

If this was Blair's idea of enriching the country, I'd rather not take part in this flawed union.

Can't deport him. he is European! Oh, and Our Government's past and present have had no spine.

It's weird that every time the liberals and the left lecture us that Romanians don't impact on crime, the papers print yet another shocking story.

Perhaps the media is just making these stories up?

Stuff the victims eh!

My understanding (and I accept it could be wrong) is that there are some circumstances in which EU citizens can be deported. But that's probably when the "human rights" mob become involved.

No the stories are real, just like the ones about UK nationals committing crime on mainland Europe. You know - the ones you never read.

We are not interested in those exported from the UK, probably on the run from here and no loss to here, we are interested in these unknown professional crooks wandering into the UK that lefties like you welcome in with open arms and make excuses for.

Of course - there was no crime in Britain until the Romanians arrived!!!

Also a NOTE TO THE EDITOR: How many burglars were in front of the court during the last week? Yet you only picked out one Romanian!

Stop your pathetic Daily Mail tactic of singling out the minority that fits your prejudices.

You are defending a multiple burglar convicted of raiding 31 homes. Have you ever felt the trauma of a burglary?

This is a clear cut serious instance of crime by a foreign national in the UK who has probably been convicted of numerous crimes in his own country and was so serious he got 8 years!

You are foolish to think that people like this are a benefit to the UK and these types of cases play into the hands of UKIP as they are the only party highlighting the issues that people worry about except you of course.
