A burglar who ram-raided a garage workshop in Peterborough and stole four motorcycles has been jailed for a year, Cambridge Live has reported.

Domantas Sakinis admitted burgling ecoMaxx Tuning on February 21 earlier this year.

He was arrested by Norfolk police on May 30 in Norwich after officers stopped him due to his manner of driving.

A check of the Police National Computer (PNC) showed he was wanted in Peterborough in connection with stolen motorcycles.

A white van on false number plates was used to ram the doors to the garage before three motorcycles were removed from inside and loaded into the van.

About 20 minutes later Sakinis returned to the scene to steal one more motorcycle, riding off on it.

PC Adrian Anderson said: “Thanks to the work of our forensic officers we were able to match Sakinis’ DNA to that found in a van which was located in Paston by the garage owner.

“He’d been alerted that the van used to carry out the burglary was parked up in Seymour Place.

“He immediately went to find it and discovered three out of the four stolen bikes inside it.

“The fourth motorcycle was never recovered.”

Sakinis appeared at Cambridge Crown Court on July 24 where he was sentenced to 12 months in prison.

    So he’ll be out in 6 months but could have destroyed someone’s life and business? And put up insurance premiums for all the rest of us.

    So he was know to police for this very crime already, we are far to soft. How many chances do these scum bags get. Many business owners or home owners don’t get a second chance when we’ve had our assets stolen or any support when we have the mentally exhausting time of telling a handful of customers there vehicles have been stolen.
    Well done police, just need the courts to give a fair sentence but that’s where the system will almost certainly fail.
