REGARDING your story Burglar is burgled. I was burgled by Mr Keeling earlier this year. In my instance I was burgled whilst I was sleeping in a room alongside the room that he entered my premeises. Mr Keeling entered my property with the full intent to steal. It was 5.15 am and I was woken by a rustling noise, which I investigated - only to find Mr Keeling in my property. He ran and jumped over nine feet to the Esplanade and escaped until the police found him 30 minutes later. Perhaps, if Mr Keeling been sent to prison for the burglary, he would not have had to witness his recent sad course of events. In his own admission, he burgled my property in order to pay his bills. Apparently, he had recently managed to pay his TV licence for the first time in his life. Why, therefore, did he not sell some of his £1,000 property instead of rifling through my items without permission in the middle of the night? I do not feel sad for Mr Keeling.Russell Bleazard Formerly of 4 Fosseway Court Seaton
