Court shame of bungling car crim­i­nal

Sunday Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

A THIEF who parked a stolen car out­side his home was shamed by a judge who told him: “You’re a bur­glar – but not a very good one.”

Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court heard how Steven Salt was ar­rested after po­lice found the miss­ing Volvo and then raided his home.

They dis­cov­ered all the other stolen goods neatly stacked in­side his flat in Blythe Bridge, Staffs.

He had even tried to buy an Ar­mani watch for £128 us­ing a stolen Ar­gos credit card. The court heard it was part of a crime spree he car­ried out last Oc­to­ber.

Salt, 40, was jailed for three years.
