JAILED teenager Adam Bishop-Bridges - who has been described as a "one-man crime wave" -- has admitted another car theft.

And city magistrates have given him a further 35 days detention, to run alongside the 30-month sentence he is serving for more than 200 offences.

The 19-year-old admitted that he stole a Ford Sierra car belonging to Ronald Reed sometime between May 17 and 19, back in 2006.

Last month Bishop-Bridges came to court to admit a string of offences that he gave details of, when British Transport Police visited him in the young offenders' institution, Glen Parva.

At that hearing, he admitted attempting to steal a white Ford Sierra belonging to Jude Bryant in August 2007, and asked for eight more offences to be taken into consideration, including the theft of a car and motorcycle, stealing a motorcycle helmet, four pedal cycle thefts, and attempting to steal a motorbike.

Bishop-Bridges, formerly of Christopher Tye Close, Ely, is due for release in the summer.
