A man who broke into a Sudbury cafe in a bid to get money to buy drugs has

been jailed.

Stephen Clark, 39, left behind a trail of more than £6,000 worth of damage

at Caffe Nero in North Street after breaking in through a rear door.

On Thursday Clark, of Weir Hall Road, Edmonton, was jailed for 10 months at Ipswich Crown Court.

Judge John Devaux told Clark that the offending was so serious that only an

immediate prison sentence was appropriate.

Clark had pleaded guilty to an offence of burglary with intent to steal on

May 18.

Prosecuting, Robert Sadd said Clark had attempted to force open the safe,

causing £5,000 worth of damage and a further £1,000 damage to the door

where he broke into the cafe.

Clark was arrested after police were alerted when an intruder alarm was

activated. His DNA was found on the safe.

Defending, Alan Richards said that Clark had committed the offence in an

attempt to get money to finance his drug addiction.
