Officers showed them the property that was recovered from Cotman and they confirmed it was theirs.

He pleaded guilty to burglary and was sentenced to four years imprisonment at Croydon Crown Court on October 29.

Burglars are despicable maggots. People who have been burgled feel violated and some people never get over it. Even if they get their stuff back, their lives never feel the same again. James Cotman must be even uglier on the inside than he is on the outside.
