A 27-YEAR-OLD plasterer has been jailed for a burglary at a railway depot three years ago.

Wayne Roberts-Vaughan, of Sholden Gardens, Orpington, was arrested by police in September 2007 after a lengthy investigation into the theft of £9,000 worth of equipment during a burglary at Orpington depot in January 2005.

He pleaded guilty and was jailed for 12 months at Croydon Crown Court on Friday.

British Transport Police PC Steve Maguire said Roberts-Vaughan's arrest came after in-depth analysis of materials collected from the crime scene revealed a fingerprint.

He added: "A good deal of material was collected from the scene. The depot door had been smashed to gain access, and walls and desks inside were destroyed during the burglary."

Roberts-Vaughan admitted trespassing on railway property but originally denied taking equipment from the depot, telling officers: "I am not a thief".
