A man has been jailed for more than two years after officers found him in the kitchen of a house in Tideswell.
Officers attended reports of a burglary on Gordon Road at around 5am on Monday, April 9 and found a man in the kitchen of the property.
The owners were asleep upstairs and unaware they were being burgled.
Stephen Twort (40) of Winster Square, Fairfield, Buxton was arrested and later charged following the investigation.
He was sentenced to 27 months in prison following a trial at Derby Crown Court on Wednesday, December 5 and was ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £170.
