Man With 224 Previous Arrests Accidentally Breaks Into Police Officer's Home

The cop in question had a rather eventful day off.

This must be even worse than finding nothing valuable inside.

A man in South Wales probably regretted breaking into one house after it turned out to be a police officer’s.

The cop in question, Stacy Bolton, was on her day off, according to ITV, and shouted at the robber, who fled the house before being arrested soon after.

The robber, Jamie Perkins, pleaded guilty to burglary, but it turns out he also has 224 previous offences — 131 of those for theft.

In handing him a 12-month jail sentence, Judge Richard Twomlow also weighed in on his character.

“You have been a thorough nuisance,” he said, according to the Mirror.
