Man who burgled Guildford infant school sentenced

Published at 3:00pm 1st June 2018.

A man who burgled an infant school and a church in Guildford has been sentenced to 18 months community order.

The 32-year-old first broke into Emmanuel Church on April 12, before targeting Stoughton infant school. 

Police were alerted to the break-in at around 3am after the cleaner disturbed a man searching through drawers and cupboards. 

Almed Kham ((formerly known as Calum Walker), from Farm Close, pleaded guilty to two counts of burglary. 

A police dog tracked him down on the night and he was subsequently arrested. 

Kham denied the offence but was charged by the Crown Prosecution Service on Tuesday, 1 May and subsequently appeared at Guildford Magistrates Court on Tuesday, 29 May.

He has been sentenced to an 18 month community order. 

Investigating Officer PC Hannah Randall said; “By targeting a church and a school, Mr Kham has profoundly affected the local community.

We want to thank everyone who spoke to us during this investigation, and because of the information provided by the public we were able to arrest and sentence Mr Kham.”

Officers across the Force are continuing their crackdown on burglaries across the county and are encouraging communities to report suspicious activity as soon as they see it.
