Curfew on car thief

The vehicle was seen by police officers being driven along Common Road, Witchford, on May 15, a day after it was stolen. The youth was identified at the scene.
He was also ordered to carry 10 hours of supervised work, had six penalty points put on any licence he takes out in future and ordered to pay £25 costs.

He was originally given an intensive surveillance and supervision order for that offence, but breached the order.
