A second burglary was committed at the same premises overnight between 5 and 6 December when glass in a door was smashed. Alcohol was again stolen from the premises as well as cash from a charity tin.
Alcohol was also stolen in a burglary at a business premises in Nottingham Road, Melton, which happened at around 2am on 10 December.
A window was smashed at the property leading to the items being stolen.
The other burglary was committed at a property in Thorpe Road on 12 December.
A mobile phone, watch and cash were stolen after the door was forced open at the property.
CCTV analysis from the incidents led to the defendant being identified in addition to forensic evidence of blood which was left at the scene of the premises in Scalford Road.
Ailmore was arrested on 13 December and charged with the offences.
Police Constable Vikash Patel said: “Ailmore appeared to show no concern or remorse for the victims of his crimes as he carried out these burglaries.”
“Investigative work including CCTV analysis led to charges being made and the guilty pleas being entered today.
“I would like to thank the victims in this case for their co-operation throughout this investigation. We will not tolerate these crimes taking place and continually work to both prevent these crimes and to catch the people responsible for them.”
