Serial thief may get drug therapy

THIEF Daniel Gillett - who

targeted six local shops within six weeks - is to be assessed to see if he is suitable for a drug rehabilitation order.

Gillett, 21, of Friars Place, Littleport, has admitted stealing two pairs of track suit bottoms from Giles Sport in Ely, stealing pasta salad and a chocolate bar from One Stop in Littleport; stealing four bottles of alcohol from One Stop in Ely; and stealing children's clothing from Peacocks in Ely.

He stole a top box from the Co-op in Littleport, three sports tops from Gilesports in Ely, and a Splash Attack game from Woolworths in Ely.

He has further admitted attempting to steal packs of bacon from One Stop in Littleport, resisting a police officer, and breaching conditional discharge.

Ely magistrates have asked the probation service to see if Gillett would benefit from a community order with a drug rehabilitation requirement, and are due to make a decision on July 13.

Flip-flop attack

DRUNKEN Neil Garner attacked his partner with a pair of flip-flops and then kicked her heel, leaving her with a cut, Ely magistrates heard on Thursday.

Neil Garner, 33, of New Barns Avenue, had earlier admitted assaulting Nicola McManus in Ely on November 18, and this week was given an 80-hour community work order and told to pay £150 costs.

Garner, a self employed labourer, told the court the couple were still living together.

Too late for trial

LITTLE Downham man Robert Mace, who has denied possessing an offensive weapon, arrived too late at court to face trial this week.

Mace, 32, of Lawn Lane, is accused of possessing a 12-inch adjustable wrench in Nutholt Lane at Ely on March 10.
