A Sheffield man is starting years behind bars for multiple crimes including
burglary, theft, drugs and driving offences.

Patrick Lee Bailey, 34, of no fixed address, was charged with four
commercial burglaries, one theft from a dwelling, one possession of a weapon
offence, one possession of cannabis offence and multiple driving offences.

Yesterday (Wednesday 15 August) following a trial at Sheffield Crown Court,
Bailey was found guilty of all these crimes and has been sentenced to serve
four years and three months in prison.

The commercial burglaries took place across the Derbyshire and North
Yorkshire borders, within Sheffield city centre and in Crookes, Sheffield,
between July 2017 and February 2018.

Bailey also committed a further theft from his own family totalling
approximately £13,000 before fleeing the city. He was later arrested in
February 2018 while committing another commercial burglary In Scarborough.

DC Haydn Crooks, the investigating officer in the case, said: “Bailey’s
victims have gone through a great deal of torment and distress due to his
actions. Bailey even committed a serious crime against his own family who
had done nothing but try to help him and in return, he stole from them.

“The family have been amazing in their strength during what has been an
agonising 12 months. Hopefully, this sentence will go some way to helping
them rebuild their lives in the knowledge that Bailey will be in custody for
a substantial period.”
