A burglar caught breaking into a house that had been fitted with secret recording equipment by police in Wolverhampton has been jailed for four-and-a-half months.

Andres Balog forced his way in to the property in Park Village on 12 January, 2014, triggering motion-sensor cameras which filmed his every move. They’d been placed in the Park Village terrace − one of many capture houses across the West Midlands − by detectives from CID, in a bid to catch thieves red-handed.
