A jobless man was sentenced to five years' corrective training on Wednesday for a series of offences including housebreaking by night and criminal intimidation.

Henry Tan, 27, had pleaded guilty to four of seven charges.

A district court heard earlier that Tan went to Block 827, Woodlands Street 81 at about 11pm on June 18 last year. He walked past a unit and managed to unlock the aluminium grille using his own house keys.

He climbed in and removed two knives from the kitchen, and put them in a plastic bag.
