A CONVICTED burglar had a taste of his own medicine when his flat was broken into in Seaton town centre.Moses Keeling, 46, who has made over 30 court appearances for around 130 offences, said almost £1,000 was taken during the burglary on Monday (December 8).He said he now understands the pain he has inflicted on others after his door was forced open and personal items were rummaged through.But, while he believes he may be deserving of such a crime, he says his girlfriend, Carol Evans, was not.He said: "When I walked through the door and saw we had been burgled I felt sheer rage. "I now know what it feels like - I never felt like that before."He said theives had also gone through Carol's underwear drawer, too - causing her to replace everything that was touched.He said: "Knowing someone has gone through your personal belongings is horrible. "There are feelings of paranoia, too. "I understand fully the sort of emotional damage that is done - not just monetary."If I'm honest, I would say it's just deserts for me. "But not for Carol - she hasn't done anything.
