Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a man has been sentenced for a theft in Faringdon.
Philip O’Driscoll, aged 55, of Thornbridge Avenue, Swindon, pleaded guilty to one count of theft at Oxford Magistrates’ Court yesterday (14/11).
At the same hearing, he was sentenced to pay £6850 compensation to the victim.
The sentencing is in connection with a theft that took place on Wednesday 12 October when a black Ifor Williams horse trailer was stolen from Mallins Lane, Longcot.
O'Driscoll was arrested on 14 October, and charged on the same day.
Investigating officer, PC Ryan Dollery, of the Rural Crime Taskforce, said: “I am pleased with the result as it has completely removed the profit O’Driscoll may have received for the horse trailer.
“The rural crime taskforce will continue to work hard to disrupt and convict rural crime offenders.”
