On April 10, Deon Germain, of Eaton Green Road in Luton, stole a child's camera and mobile phones from a family living on Liverpool Road, St Albans.

The 54-year-old was arrested by the St Albans Local Crime Unit and sentenced to four months in prison in May.

Following this sentence, the family came to the police station with handmade thank you cards and muffins.
