A Chislehurst man who twice broke into The Glades dressed as a cat burglar has been sentenced.

Mehran Parsai, 18, of Meadow Close, pleaded guilty to two counts of burglary and was sentenced to 30 weeks in prison, suspended for 18 months at Bromley Magistrates Court last week.

Police were called by security at the shopping centre who had seen a man breaking in on their CCTV at 2.30am on February 7.

Officers found Parsai dressed like a cat burglar and carrying a break-in kit containing items such as a ski mask, an angle grinder and wire cutters.

He was subsequently linked to a previous break-in on January 24 when £784 was stolen from the Krispy Kreme donut stall, along with 39 gift vouchers, valued at more than £400, and a pair of cufflinks.

Parsai was ordered to complete 150 hours unpaid community work, as well as paying £784 compensation to Krispy Kreme.
