Kenneth Wright

Detectives working on Operation Castle, the force’s ongoing operation to tackle burglary, are welcoming the sentencing of a Walton man to four years and three months after pleading guilty at Liverpool Crown Court.

Kenneth Wright, 45 years of no fixed abode to two offences of burglary, which both took place in the early hours of 27 March 2019 at two addresses in Fazakerley. He was arrested after being detained by a member of the public, whose house he had just tried to enter.

Detective Inspector Andy McCourt said: “We are pleased to see Wright put behind bars for these offences. We know how offenders responsible for these types of crime, have no regard for the impact they have on victims. If you keep coming forward with any information, we will ensure those communities affected by burglary continue to be protected.

“There is crime prevention advice available on our website and I would particularly ask that people lock all their windows and doors before going to bed, move any vehicle keys away from sight of windows and the reach of letter boxes and lock garden tools in sheds so that they cannot be used to force entry into properties.”
