A PROLIFIC thief will not get a reprieve on his lengthy jail sentence after a high court appeal was thrown out.

Preng Gjoka, of Kidlington, Oxford, admitted 22 burglary offences which saw him steal £60,000 in jewellery and cash across the South-East.


At his sentencing in June 2021, Reading Crown Court heard how the 27-year-old was arrested as part of Operation Ordain investigating 43 burglaries across the region.

The offences happened between November 5, and November 23, 2019, and thousands of pounds in cash and jewellery were stolen.

Gjoka admitted his part, pleading guilty to 22 counts of conspiracy to burgle and was sentenced at the same court on Friday, June 18.

He received a prison sentence of nine years and four months.

In a hearing at the Court of Appeal on Tuesday, July 5, Gjoka appealed his sentence hoping for a reduction in jail time.

However, the application was refused.
