The serial burglar, known as "Essex Spiderman", created a list of the 200 richest people in the county when he was targeting people like Lord Sugar.
David Buisson, 49, had targeted some of the richest people in Essex in a six-month "orgy" of burglaries.
Apprentice star Lord Sugar was one of his victims when Buisson stole watches and jewelry from the Chigwell Peer House last year worth £ 184,000.
David Sullivan, the chairman of West Ham United, is also said to have invaded Buisson's burglary.
The former helicopter pilot is said to have created a list of the 192 richest people in Essex with Facebook.
Buisson used to break into Lord Sugar's house on June 5 last year.
He then returned the following night to try to open a safe with a drill.
Buisson pleaded guilty to ten burglaries and two attempted burglaries with Judge Ian Graham, who was serving an eight-year prison sentence.
The judge said it was difficult to understand the reasons for Buison's "orgy of break-ins".
However, Buisson was not charged with the attempted slump of Sullivan's 7.5 million pound house in Theydon Bois, which was targeted last year.

Sullivan had offered a £ 25,000 reward to find the burglar after someone broke into his house, but he was scared when the hi-tech alarm system was triggered.
Basildon Crown Court heard that Buisson aimed at isolated villas during the night and was occasionally assisted by his nephew Benjamin Buisson, 29, who was waiting in the escape car.
Buisson was eventually captured by the National Crime Agency after Buisson was on the run in Spain.
Ongar's Benjamin Buisson was jailed for two years at a previous hearing.
