Man sentenced for various offences in High Wycombe

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch


Following a joint investigation between Thames Valley Police, Surrey Police and the Met Police, a man has been sentenced for numerous offences.
Jim Chuter, aged 33, of no fixed abode, was sentenced on Thursday (19/5) for nine counts of burglary, sixteen counts of fraud and one count of robbery.
The offences in the Thames Valley occurred in Edgewood, High Wycombe, along with Marlow Road, Bourne End and Washington Drive, Slough.
Chuter was sentenced to 11 years in prison after entering a guilty plea at Guildford Crown Court.
On multiple occasions in 2020, Chuter approached elderly people claiming that he needed to carry out work on their property.
He would often barge into the victim’s home uninvited and aggressively press them for cash in exchange for the bogus work.
He would then steal more cash and bank cards from the victim’s homes without their knowledge, which he would then use to withdraw money from their accounts.
In some cases, Chuter pretended to be a health care worker and used the threat of Covid-19 to intimidate and confuse victims into letting him into their homes.
Investigating officer, Detective Constable Richard Tulloch, based at High Wycombe police station, said: “Chuter is a heartless criminal who had no problem in exploiting the vulnerability of elderly people for his own financial gain.
“Our sympathies remain with each of the victims in these cases, who were manipulated by Chuter and tricked and burgled of their cash.
“I hope that today’s result provides some form of justice for the victims, some of which are sadly not with us now and never got to see Chuter held to account for his abhorrent behaviour.”
