A serial burglar has been jailed after he conspired to steal from homes across four counties, including Oxfordshire.

Pavel Levinte, aged 36, of Shackleton Road, Slough, was sentenced to five years and nine months’ imprisonment at Aylesbury Crown Court on Friday (April 29).

He pleaded guilty to nine counts of conspiracy to burgle in a hearing at Aylesbury Crown Court on 12 January.

Between 23 April and 26 June 2021, Levinte conspired to commit burglary at new build houses in Aylesbury, Weston Turville, Bicester, Buckingham and properties in Hampshire and Sussex.

He entered finished, unoccupied houses to disconnect and steal gas boilers and ovens.

Levinte was arrested on 30 June last year and charged on 2 July.

Investigating officer PC Jake Farrell, of the Priority Crime team based at Aylesbury police station, said: “Levinte targeted 89 properties on building sites that were uninhabited and took valuable fittings over the course of nine evenings.

“Residential burglary is an invasive crime which Thames Valley Police is always committed to investigating and bringing offenders to justice.

“Levinte will now have to serve a prison sentence as a result of his actions, and I hope he uses this time to reflect on his offending behaviour.”
