A CAREER criminal has been jailed after leaving his discharge papers at a crime scene.
Mudasser Ahmed, 43, was caught in the act of breaking into a college dorm.
He fled without his backpack, which contained two stolen laptops and documents with his personal details and a photo.
He admitted burglary and was jailed at Nottingham Crown Court for three years and nine months.
Det Sgt Franco Guddemi said: “To commit another burglary while still having release papers in his pocket shows what a prolific career criminal he is.”
Detective Sergeant Franco Guddemi, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “To commit another burglary while still having prison release papers in his pocket shows what kind of prolific career criminal we are dealing with.
“I am pleased with the sentence passed on Ahmed and it sends another strong message that this type of insult will never be tolerated by the force.”
The court heard how one of the students had left the kitchen area in the apartments and was trying to return to his room when he heard a man’s voice inside.
He tried to open his door but the person inside pushed it shut and locked the door from the inside.
After about a minute, Ahmed, who had no fixed address, walked into the corridor with a backpack in hand, where several students were facing him.
He pushed past them and verbally abused them before the offender lost one of his false teeth during the ensuing fight.
Another student grabbed Ahmed’s backpack and when they searched the bag, they found two laptops, a charger and aftershave, as well as the personal information that revealed his identity.
