In the early hours of Monday, September 4, the pair burgled the Arksey Mini Mart in Doncaster.

A black Seat Leon was seen to leave the scene of the burglary and was stopped by officers in Mexborough area after a police chase.

Andrewatha and Parry were arrested on suspicion of burglary, with Andrewatha also arrested for driving while disqualified.

Further enquiries revealed that the same vehicle had been used in a burglary reported in the Cusworth area on Friday, September 1, where a till and cash were stolen.

It was also linked to an attempted burglary the following day at a shop in the Hatfield Woodhouse area.

PC Leanne Heath, of South Yorkshire Police, said: "Both men are now in prison for their crimes and have admitted responsibility for committing multiple offences in a short period of time.

"We are absolutely committed to tackling burglary and bringing before the courts those individuals who carry out this crime, in a bid to make our communities safer."
