Scunthorpe man jailed for burglary stole step-father's car
The mother of a man who was jailed for burglary says her son should be made accountable after he stole his step-father's sports car and had "never shown any signs of remorse".
Tyler Clayton, of Henderson Avenue, Scunthorpe, admitted smashing his way in to his mother's house before making off with his step-father's BMW.
He also admitted carrying out three raids on commercial properties in Scarborough.
Clayton, 20, was also jailed for an act of "drunken bravado" in which he threw a brick through a window of a home on Ferry Road West, Scunthorpe on June 29. Prior to sentencing at Grimsby Crown Court, Clayton asked for seven other burglaries, committed between September 11 and 12 to be taken into consideration.

In a victim impact statement, Clayton's mother, Christine Barrett, said she was "disgusted" with Clayton, that he had "never shown any sign of remorse" and that "he should be made accountable".
Craig Lowe, prosecuting, said: "Mr Clayton had taken some of his mother's personal items so she kicked him out. She had not seen him since."
Clayton, along with Craig Jollands, 22, from Wolverhampton, went to his mother's house in Scunthorpe on June 4. The pair smashed their way into the property and made off in the BMW having taken a television and a gold ring, worth around £1,200.
When police caught up with him they found him to be in possession of 1.27g of crack cocaine and four wraps of heroin. Police estimated the street value at around £340 for both.
He was also found with £493 cash on him.
Mr Lowe said while on bail, Clayton, along with Anthony Wiltshire, 21, of Scott Close, Grimsby, targeted three Scarborough premises after a night out on September 12.
Recorder Tahir Khan QC sentenced Clayton to 22 months in a young offender's institution. For the burglary on his mother's property he was given 12 months custody, six months for possession with intent to supply Class A drugs and four months for the burglaries in Scarborough. He will also serve three months concurrently for the criminal damage. No charge was brought against him for making off with his step-father's BMW.
Jollands was given a 10 month prison sentence for burglary, suspended for 12 months. He was also ordered to carry out 200 hours unpaid work.
Wiltshire was jailed for four months for the burglaries in Scarborough and 18 months for a burglary in Grimsby.
