A bungling burglar was caught after he answered the door to police officers while raiding a flat for the second time in the same day.

Marvin Russell, 38, had been homeless for two weeks when he broke into the Bournemouth property and took an iPad, laptop, camera and earphones, the Bournemouth Echo reports.

But when police arrived, Russell didn't try and escape. In fact he let them in – despite holding the stolen items, prosecutor Simon Jones said.

Russell, who was only release from prison two weeks ago and who had reportedly begged police officers not to release him, was called a ‘three-striker’ with 36 convictions for 66 offences to his name, Mr Jones said.

‘He had identified that he had no accommodation, no methadone script in place, no drug agencies [to support him] and no money,’ said Leslie William Smith, mitigating.

‘He asked not to be released because he would fail as he failed [before]. Nothing happened – on February 3, the door [of Winchester Prison] was opened and he was let out.’

Mr Smith said Russell had returned to the scene of the crime to wipe away fingerprints. He was sentenced to 18 months behind bars.

‘You do have a very, very bad record,’ said Recorder Jeremy Wright, Metro News Reported.
