In the latest offences, just before 1am on August 5, he rode a lady’s bicycle into the front door of Mace Store on Green End Road, Cambridge, and appeared to view the CCTV camera before riding off.

At 1.07am, he was captured on CCTV cycling up to the front of Nisa, also on Green End Road, where he removed a D lock from the basket and hit the front door three times before getting back on the bike and leaving.

A member of the public then reported a break-in at the Post Office on Chesterton High Street at 1.52am.

Officers searched the area using the descriptions given and arrested him after a short chase through gardens.

CCTV footage from the Post Office showed Beaumont stealing alcohol and confectionery worth £500.

Beaumont was sentenced at Huntingdon Law Courts on September 6 to two years and four months in prison after pleading guilty to burglary and two counts of attempted burglary.

He also pleaded guilty to two counts of public order offences, assault by beating, seven counts of theft from a shop, seven counts of theft from a motor vehicle, two attempted thefts from a motor vehicle, vehicle interference, possession of cocaine and failing to surrender.

Det Insp Gordon Blair said: “Beaumont is a prolific criminal who has caused misery to so many people with his offending.

“We hope this sentence will give him the opportunity to consider the consequences of his actions while also providing his victims reassurance that justice has been served.”
