Sudbury court: Crime spree began at sex shop

A busy month of crime last fall that included a theft at a sex shop, harassment of two women and a man and the theft of a vehicle has earned a Hamilton man the equivalent of an eight-month jail sentence.

Wesley Stewart, 45, who pleaded guilty to nine offences, most of which were breaches of probation and recognizance, received the sentence Tuesday from Ontario Court Justice Karen Lische.

As Stewart had been in custody for 66 days, he received pre-custody credit of 99 days. Lische took that into account and issued just under five months jail to produce a total sentence of eight months.

The court heard that many of the offences occurred while Stewart was on probation or on bail. The theft in Hamilton was at The Love Shop, where Stewart stole $781 worth of items, but they were recovered.

The vehicle theft charge in Greater Sudbury involved a Dodge Journey, which was

London moped gang behind £1m crime spree laugh in court | Daily …

A gang of 10 moped raiders behind a £1 million crime spree across London laughed in the dock today as lawyers took almost an hour to outline the 99 previous convictions they have amassed for 172 offences.

Prosecutors say the judge should pass severe deterrent sentences on the thugs after an ‘exponential rise’ of moped robbery on the streets of London.

The bandits stole phones, tablet computers and caused damage worth more than £1 million using hammers, knives, a gun and even a fencing post as a battering ram.

They hit different Three Mobile outlets several times in the early hours to grab the latest handsets and were in and out in ‘a matter of minutes.’

This is the gang of 10 moped riders who caused chaos across London in a series of violent raids that saw them use an array<p data-recalc-dims=Read more at: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5199275/Moped-gang-1m-crime-spree-laugh-court.html

#SaferFestiveSeason: Two in court after crime spree

The suspects face charges of kidnapping, rape, robbery and hijacking. They were arrested during the Northern Cape police’s Safer Festive Season operation. Police seized two unlicensed firearms and ammunition after the suspects were traced to their hideouts in Bodulong and Maruping near Kuruman. One other suspect remains at large. They will apply for bail at the Kuruman Magistrate’s Court. According to the police’s Olebogeng Tawana, the arrest will assist in resolving many cases…

Tawana urged the wanted suspect to turn himself in at his nearest police station. Northern Cape Commissioner, Peter Shivuri, said that there will be no hiding place for criminals. “If it happens that they run into the water, we shall retrieve them. If they go into the sky, we shall arrest them. All our resources are ready for the operation. We are determined to lock down on criminals,” explained Tawana.
