Lee Taylor admitted breaking into the Yorkshire Deli on Wakefields Northgate.

He was re-sentenced on all charges.

A report into Taylor read: “The offence was aggravated by the defendant’s record of previous offending, because the offence was committed during a suspended sentence.”

Earlier this year another burglar was also jailed for 30 months for breaking into the Yorkshire Deli.
