A man has been jailed for 12 years following a string of burglaries, robberies and thefts which targeted the elderly and vulnerable last year - including nine offences in Lowestoft.

Deividas Zvironas, of De Havilland Avenue in Bedford, appeared at Luton Crown Court on Friday, January 12.

After being arrested in Bedford on November 6 Zvironas was charged in relation to three thefts, three burglaries, two robberies and an incident of fraud using a stolen bank card all of which occurred in Lowestoft between September 26 and October 8.

In addition to these offences, Zvironas was charged with two robberies which took place in Great Yarmouth between June 25 and October 11.

A further four burglaries and one attempted burglary took place in the Bedford and Kempston areas of Bedfordshire between October 12 to October 26.

He was also charged with one count of assault causing grievous bodily harm and one count of common assault, both relating to incidents occurring in Bedfordshire.

Det. Insp. Matt Adams, of East CID at Lowestoft Police Station, said: “Deividas Zvironas is a prolific criminal who travelled around three counties causing misery for numerous victims.

“His offending involved him deliberately targeting elderly and other vulnerable people.

“I would personally like to praise all the detectives that worked on this case in all three counties, as every effort was made to identify this individual and link him to this series of offences due to the threat his offending posed to the public.

“Although we took the lead for this inquiry in Suffolk, I am grateful for the support given to us by our colleagues in both Norfolk and Bedfordshire who I am sure, like us, will be satisfied with the sentence today.”
