He asked for five other offences to be taken into consideration.
A probation report had been ordered by Judge Paul Darlow at a previous hearing to determine how Evans had fared under a court order to treat his drug habit.
He was handed 30 months for the burglary, six months concurrent for the fraud, and a further 30 months to run concurrent of a number of other matters to be taken into consideration, minus 23 days already spent in custody.
