Lee Eary, of Wood Lane End in Hemel Hempstead was sentenced to three years and ten weeks in jail for attempted robbery.

The 44-year-old was sentenced at Luton Crown Court on Thursday July 20, after previously being found guilty for multiple crimes.

In May this year, Eary was convicted of three counts of attempted burglary and one count of vehicle interference.

The offences were in breach of two separate Suspended Sentence Orders (SSOs) previously imposed on the man from Hemel Hempstead.

All four offences were committed over two nights on Saturday 17 April and Sunday 18 April this year in the Leverstock Green area of the town.

Eary was caught on camera, as the victims' doorbell surveillance captured Eary trying and failing to gain access to their properties and vehicles.

Following the sentencing on Tuesday 20 July, investigating officer PC Sarah Scanlon said: “Eary has shown us that he has no qualms about stealing from hard-working people in the

community.

“I am pleased he has received a custodial sentence for his crimes, meaning residents in Hemel Hempstead no longer have to worry about being targeted by Eary.

“This case is an excellent example of doorbell cameras’ value in protecting your property, as the footage often provides police and partners with evidence in our investigations.”
