Thief must do un­paid work

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

A thief who broke into vans and stole thou­sands of pounds worth of tools has been or­dered to carry out un­paid com­mu­nity work.

Jack Stro­ver, of By­brook Road, Ash­ford, de­nied the theft charge but was con­victed by Folke­stone mag­is­trates for the of­fence which hap­pened in Oc­to­ber last year.

The 29-year-old took tools and prop­erty worth £5,124 from the ve­hi­cles parked in a yard at the Cobbs Wood In­dus­trial Es­tate.

Stro­ver was or­dered to com­plete 220 hours of un­paid work in the next year, and was also or­dered to pay £1,000 in com­pen­sa­tion.
