THREE burglars, who between them robbed 14 pubs across two counties in two months, have been jailed.

Alan Smith, David McChesney and Stuart Guildea, all from Luton, were sentenced to a total of 12 and a half years, following a spate of break-ins last summer.

Between April and June 2008, Smith and McChesney burgled pubs across Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire, including The Sun Inn, Lemsford, The Globe in Codicote and Hopfields in Hatfield.

The pair, both 31, were sentenced to five years each, while Guildea, also 31, was jailed for two and a half, for a joint burglary with Smith in Luton.
