A prolific burglar who targeted a home in Uplands in February 2020 has been sentenced to four years in prison after a glove and receipts led to his arrest.

Kevin Lesley Lewis, aged 50 from Mount Pleasant in Swansea, entered the home in Eden Avenue and stole a wallet and a set of car keys.

The subsequent police investigation included the DNA analysis of a glove, which was recovered from the back garden of the property, and DNA work on a set of discarded receipts from the stolen wallet.

Kevin Lewis was forensically linked to the burglary through his DNA.

Detective Inspector Gareth Jones said: “I am very pleased that this prolific burglar has been held accountable and I would like to thank all of those involved in the lengthy investigation that brought him to justice.

“Residential burglaries such as this are despicable crimes and the distress caused to victims is immeasurable.

“I welcome this sentence and I hope it reassures our communities that we take burglary offences very seriously and investigate all available lines of enquiry to identify those responsible and bring them to justice.”
