Four-year jail sentence for Warwickshire car thief

Rugby Editorial 31st Jan, 2020   0

A MAN has been jailed after stealing high value cars from across Warwickshire and the West Midlands.

Scott Errol Williams, of no fixed abode, admitted conspiring to steal cars valued over £150,000 from properties in Brinklow, Southam, Rugby and Knowle. The thefts took place between April 2018 and January 2019.

The 38-year-old was arrested shortly after a car was stolen from a property in Knowle in January last year.

Police managed to link him to the theft in Knowle along with the others.

Appearing at Warwick Crown Court on Wednesday (January 29) Williams pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit theft. He was jailed for four years.

Police staff investigator Dave Hone said: “Williams went on a crime spree across the county, targeting high-value cars.

“This case should send a clear message to criminals who think they can evade police that we have a range of methods available to identify you, link you to offences and put you before the courts.”
