Teenage burglar Adam Crampton sentenced for 338 crimes
A teenager who burgled hundreds of homes and often escaped in his victim's cars or on their mopeds was jailed for five years today.
Adam Crampton (19) appeared at Leicester Crown Court today to admit a seven year crime spree across Leicestershire, which included 278 burglaries and 60 vehicle thefts.
Crampton, of no fixed address, was already serving a four year sentence at Glen Parva Young Offender Institute after pleading guilty to robbery and burglary offences at the same court in March this year. During that hearing he asked for 183 thefts from motor vehicles to be taken into consideration.
Police officers visited Crampton in prison where he confessed to the offences for which he was sentenced today.

The court was told he had admitted the crimes in order to "wipe his slate clean" and prepare for a new crime-free life.
