Village treasurer stole cash to help his business
Andrew Bouton, a former treasurer of Kelsale Village Hall, made 50 transfers from the hall's bank account into his own over a period of two years.
Kelsale Village Hall was run as a charitable organisation on behalf of the village and it had been seriously impacted by the fraud, Ipswich Crown Court heard.
Steven Dyble, for Bouton, said his client committed the offence after things went "pear-shaped" for his business and he ran out of options.
Bouton, 68, admitted fraud by abuse of position between February 16, 2018, and May 30, 2020.
He was jailed for 14 months.
Robber uses toy gun to steal Dr Pepper from kebab shop
Daniel Burrows threatened a Lowestoft kebab shop owner with a toy gun as he stole a can of Dr Pepper.
Ipswich Crown Court heard Burrows was a regular at Kings Kebab in London Road South but was denied free food when he entered the store on September 21 last year.
When the shopkeeper refused, Burrows took out a toy gun from the waistband of his trousers and waved it around.
Armed officers arrived in the area and the 33-year-old was arrested.
Burrows admitted possessing an imitation firearm with intent to cause fear of violence, robbery, possession of a knife and possession of cannabis, and was jailed for 44 months.
