A British man who bullied an elderly woman out of about $50 to clean her gutters - work she didn't need - was sentenced last week to three years in prison.

Jamie Larkman was found guilty of burglary, West Midlands Police said Tuesday.

On Jan. 21, Larkman knocked on the 88-year-old woman's door and asked if she wanted him to clean her gutters.

The woman said no, but Larkman got a ladder and bucket and started to work. He then barged into the woman's house and demanded money.

Even after a neighbour came to help the woman, Larkman insisted he was owed money and the woman gave him about $50 to make him go away. When he didn't immediately leave, police were called.

Larkman insisted to officers the woman had agreed to the work, but police said there had been other similar complaints about him.
