Man who targeted cars in Swaffham, Ashill and North Pickenham is given suspended sentence
A 22-year-old man has been given a suspended prison sentence after admitting to more than 30 vehicle offences.
Adin Sieley, of no fixed address, appeared at Norwich Magistrates Court on Thursday where he was sentenced to eight months imprisonment, suspended for two years.
Sieley pleaded guilty to 11 counts of theft from a motor vehicle and 20 counts of interfering with a vehicle, committed in Swaffham, Ashill and North Pickenham in November and December.
The court heard how Sieley tried a number of car doors overnight in Swaffham on November 10 and 11, stealing property from vehicles in Minnow Close, Salhouse Drive, Sutton Road, Hickling Close and Meadowsweet Road.
Then on November 26, cash and Christmas presents were stolen from an car on a private driveway in North Pickenham. Vehicles were targeted in Hillside, Houghton Lane and Church Lane at the village.
The final series took place in Ashill on December 26 and 27 where vehicles parked in The Oakes, Fir Park, Watton Road and Acacia Avenue were targeted with property stolen.
The defendant was identified as a suspect through CCTV enquiries and arrested and later charged with 31 offences.
Sieley was also sentenced to carry out 160 hours of unpaid work and pay £200 in compensation along with a drug rehabilitation order.
