Freeman rammed a police car as he tried to escape
A prolific burglar has been jailed for two years after he admitted committing up to 25 crimes in Manchester.
Among the offences, Aaron Freeman, 20, of Chimebank, Crumpsall, pleaded guilty to three counts of burglary, stealing a car and failing to stop after a crash.
Manchester Crown Court heard he committed the offences in a three-month period across the north of the city.
Det Insp Mark Hudson said he was "willing to take dangerous action to avoid being caught".
He admitted burglary, stealing keys, taking people's cars and trying to raid The Alliance Pub in Harpurhey.
On one occasion, the court heard, Freeman used the stolen Mini he was driving to ram the police car out of his way.
He then drove off at 95mph in a built up residential area before abandoning the car and fleeing.
Detectives managed to collect evidence against him after they found a glove with his DNA on by the broken window of a pub that he had tried to break into.
When he was finally arrested, in March, this year, he admitted the offences. He was charged with 10 and another 25 were taken into account, a police spokesman confirmed.
Det Insp Mark Hudson added: "Freeman has admitted to his involvement in numerous crimes that caused misery to the community of Greater Manchester.
"He was willing to take dangerous action to avoid being caught by police but once he knew his time was up, he was willing to own up to his crime spree.
"I am pleased he is now off the streets and unable to disrupt the lives of any more innocent people."
