Gainsborough house burglar left his blood on window frame
A Gainsborough man broke into an empty house in the town with the aim of stealing, a court heard.
Daniel Dziwota believed there was a computer inside the home in Stanley Street before he broke in by removing the beading from around one of the window frames, which allowed him to remove one of the panes of glass.
The owner, who had only recently bought the property, returned to check on it and found a crate of lager bottles were missing.
A number of bin bags full of items belonging to the previous occupant had also been removed but had been dumped in the garden.

Dziwota 18, of Kexby Walk, Gainsborough, was linked to the raid after his blood was found on the kitchen window frame.
He admitted burglary with intent to steal on June 15 last year. He was given eight months at a young offenders' institution but was released immediately because of the time he spent in custody while on remand awaiting his court appearance.
Jonathan Dunne, defending Dziwota at Lincoln Crown Court, said his client had believed there was a computer inside and admitted breaking in to steal anything of value.
He said his client left without taking anything and he denied stealing the alcohol.
Mr Dunne said that at the time of the offence Dziwota had only just turned 18 and had moved out of his parents' home after they became angry at his drinking and his behaviour.
Mr Dunne said: "It does seem that in the last couple of years he has gone completely off the rails."
Dziwota denied a second charge of burglary at a house in Bacon Street, Gainsborough, on 17 June and was cleared after the prosecution offered no evidence against him.
