IPSWICH: Teenage tearaway Lamar Boyden is today starting a two-year sentence behind bars after breaking into a house and stealing an expensive car.
The 19-year-old, of Colchester Road, entered a house in Lancing Avenue, stealing a mobile and keys to a Mercedes CLK, which he nicked from outside the property.
He was later involved in an accident which caused damage to the vehicle.
Boyden pleaded guilty to burglary, aggravated vehicle taking and driving a motor vehicle without insurance in relation to the incidents on September 14 or 15.
He was sentenced at Ipswich Crown Court to two years and three months in a young offenders' institute and banned from driving for 21 months.
Two charges of making off without payment and damage to property are to lie on his file.

Last year, Boyden was jailed for 14 weeks after sparking a late-night police siege in Nacton Road.
He hurled furniture from a first-floor window, brandished a kitchen knife and threatened to shoot police with a gun during the tense stand-off on November 26.
Police officers had been called when he began smashing his mother's car. He then retreated inside the house, where he threw objects at police officers from a window.
