A BURGLAR and fraudster has been sentenced today (Thursday).

Adam Cribben, 38, from Taunton, had earlier pleaded guilty to 14 offences and admitted a significant number of other crimes at Taunton Magistrates' Courts.

Cribben was today given a two-year community order when he appeared before a judge at Taunton Crown Court.

He is required to attend a 12-month drugs rehabilitation course, undertake 150 hours of unpaid work in the community and has been placed on a 12-month GPS location tag.

He had admitted eight counts of burglary, five counts of fraud and possession of Class A drugs.

Cribben was arrested on May 22 after forensics linked him to a number of recent crimes.
