'Brazen' thief is spared prison.

A "BRAZEN" thief who stole a transporter with eight cars loaded on it after fooling the Lithuanian driver was spared jail yesterday.

James Deeney, 51, of Nelson Court, Rhyl, pleaded guilty to stealing the transporter and its load of old cars, said to be valued at up to PS10,000, in November 2011. He was given a nine months jail sentence, suspended for 18 months, and must carry out 200 hours' of unpaid work and be under supervision for a year.

Jonathan Austin, prosecuting at Caernarfon crown court, said the driver had been stranded at Ewloe after Vosa had carried out a check and found the lorry did not comply with regulations.

Deeney came across the transporter and suggested that it should be moved to a secure parking area at Lymm. The driver agreed and was told he wasn't allowed to drive it there. The transporter didn't turn up and was later found in the Manchester area.

Judge Philip Hughes said: "Your offence was the result of a brazen deception of a vulnerable foreign driver."
