A quick police response which led to a man being jailed for a burglary in Spalding has been praised by town centre traders.
Lukasz Jalocha (25) of Pinchbeck Road, Spalding, was jailed for 20 weeks by Grantham magistrates last Tuesday after a burglary at Revills Shoes in Francis Street on September 13.
Police arrested Jalocha less than two days after the burglary was reported, with the help of evidence gathered at the shop by scenes of crime officers.
A spokesman for The Crescent Traders Association said: “We can’t thank and praise Lincolnshire Police enough for their attention and speed in which this case has been dealt with.
“Their proactive attitude ensured that local businesses were able to continue trading, without causing any disruption to shoppers and business owners, with the knowledge that the offender had been arrested so quickly.”
Spalding community policing inspector Jim Tyner said: “I am delighted that within 36 hours of the burglary being reported to us, Jalocha was arrested and pleaded guilty at court.
“This reflects a lot of hard work and a great team effort from our community patrol officers, detectives and police community support officers.”
