A crook who broke into his ex-partner’s house and took photos of himself with her property before taking off with the goods has been jailed for at least seven months.
Aaron Smith fronted Penrith Local Court last Thursday charged with ‘break, enter and steal’ and multiple ‘fail to appears’.
The court heard Smith, who has been in custody since April 11, ransacked the home, sent text messages of him smiling with her property and taunted her when she requested the items back.
He was sentenced to 12 months in jail with a seven-month non-parole period.
He is eligible for release on November 10.
