Pogson and a group of other men targeted the property on Gleneagles Drive, Normanton, at 4.30am on November 22 last year.

A TAG Heuer watch worth £2,500 was stolen along with a laptop, cash and keys to an Audi A5 and a Fiat Tipo parked outside.

Louise Pryke, prosecuting at Leeds Crown Court, said the group pushed the two cars off the driveway of the property before they were driven away.

None of the stolen cars or property have been recovered.

Pogson, of Castlerigg Green, Woodside, Bradford, admitted burglary and theft. He has served prison sentences in the past for burglary and also has convictions for drug dealing.

Robin Freize, mitigating, said Pogson agreed to take part in the offence to fund his long-standing drug addiction.
