A WANTED burglar has been arrested by police after breaching the terms of his parole.

Shane Hodgkins, 21, was arrested on October 18 after an appeal earlier in the week to find him.

He is originally from Kidderminster but has links to Worcester and Malvern.

West Mercia Police thanked the public for their help finding Hodgkins and, in a tweet, said: "Thanks to everyone who shared our appeal for wanted man Shane Hodgkins, aged 21, who breached his terms of licence.

"Following our appeal, a 21-year-old man has been arrested."

Hodgkins appeared in court in Worcester in August 2018 charged with a series of burglaries.

While in the dock, he bit a police officer and disrupted the case.

When asked about the burglaries in court, he said: "I did every single one and I loved it.

“I’ll see you in a couple of years when I get out of jail.”
