When officers picked up Stuart Gibbs hiding in the shed of a house he was intending to burgle, they checked his phone for any potential clues. They could hardly believe their luck when they saw a message sent to a friend two hours earlier which said: "Iíve told you 20 times Ė donít ring me when Iím out robbing." The 24-year-old father of two was jailed for 18 months at Leicester Crown Court after admitting attempted burglary. He also pleaded guilty to a string of other offences including dangerous driving, driving when disqualified, handling stolen goods and possessing cannabis. The court was told that officers were called to the house in Leicester after a neighbour reported seeing two men in the garden. They arrived to find nothing had been taken but a back-door window had been smashed, causing about $A600 damage.
