A 29-year-old man who admitted breaking into a house over four years ago has been jailed.
Stephen Patrick Crerand, whose address was given as Sraith Aoibhinn, Stranorlar, Co. Donegal, pleaded guilty to the burglary of a house in Colby Avenue in January 2009.
He also admitted taking a car without authority in the creeper style burglary.
Derry Crown Court Judge Piers Grant jailed Crerand for 15 months and ordered him to spend a further 15 months on probation.
The judge warned the 29-year-old if he committed any further offences during the period of probation he would “serve a further period of custody”.
