A BURGLAR who bit a police officer and damaged a Wendy house has been jailed.

Zack Miller, from Orford, was handed 20 weeks behind bars at Warrington Magistrates Court on Friday, September 4.

The 22-year-old broke into the shed of a house on Windermere Avenue in Orford during an incident in March.

He damaged the shed and a garden fence, Wendy house and the interior of a Ford Fiesta with an ‘unknown substance’ and stole a silver diamond earring and nail varnish.

Miller, of Poplars Avenue, bit a police officer who was called out over the burglary and was found in possession of five small bags of heroin.

The defendant, who has a ‘record of offending’, admitted burglary, assaulting an emergency services worker, criminal damage, theft and possession of a class A drug.

Magistrates also told him to pay £150 in compensation and ordered the forfeiture and destruction of the heroin.
