Bournemouth Echo: Pensioner who vandalised cars in Bournemouth ordered to pay compensation Pensioner who vandalised cars in Bournemouth ordered to pay compensation

A PENSIONER was ordered to pay more than £5,000 in compensation for a spree of vandalism he carried out in March.

Bournemouth Magistrates’ Court heard on Monday that 78-year-old William Ellery admitted damaging six cars in Bournemouth between March 17 and March 28 this year, and asked for a further eight similar offences to be taken into consideration.

The offences took place near his home in Methuen Close.

The magistrates discharged Ellery conditionally for three years, but ordered him to pay a minimum of £350 compensation for each vehicle damaged, leading to a total of £5,015.

Cos he is obviously a grumpy old sod believing the whole world owes him a favour.
That and the fact he can't be too far away from his pine suit so he's going out with a bang.

Why does the Echo insist on using the same old photo of the magistrate's court - it's a vile looking building!

As for the old codger - serves him right. I bet he didn't think he'd get caught.

If you lived in the area, you JUST might be driven to do the same as a cry for help, he gets rightly fined but the druggies, **** artist's and beggars in that area get off free, and a photo would have been nice to see who was behind the case???
