A one-man crime wave has been put behind bars after almost a fortnight of prolific offending during which he burgled, stole and used violence.
Frazier Furlong was jailed for two years by Judge Robert Fraser at Chichester Crown Court after he heard about the catalogue of crime.
Furlong, 27, formerly of Brighton Road, Worthing, committed 16 offences from Saturday 28 October to Wednesday 8 November last year.
He was convicted of two burglaries and an attempted burglary, theft, fraud, having cocaine, five counts of criminal damage, obstructing a constable and three counts of assaulting an emergency worker.
Sussex Police said: “On Saturday 28 October, Furlong attempted to break into a property in Poulters Lane, Worthing.
“After he was unsuccessful, he went to another property in Offington Drive where he damaged a TV and a car which was parked in the drive.
“He was then arrested and taken to Worthing Custody Centre where he assaulted an officer.
“On Thursday 2 November, he broke into a pub in Warwick Street, Worthing, and stole alcohol before breaking into another pub in Brighton Road.
“Later that day he smashed a car window and proceeded to resist arrest.
“On Wednesday 8 November, Furlong stole an Xbox from Currys, at Lyons Farm, Worthing, and went on to sell it at a pawn shop before smashing the windows of two shops in Brighton Road and Warwick Street.
“He was then arrested and searched when he assaulted an officer and resisted arrest. He was also found in possession of cocaine.
“Furlong pleaded guilty to all 16 offences and was sentenced on Monday 8 January.”
Detective Inspector Gary Jacobs said: “Furlong caused a huge amount of distress to his victims and committed a number of unacceptable crimes in a short timeframe.
“This is an excellent result and a huge credit to the team for securing the charges which has led to this sentence.”
