A man who was involved in taking a car which was left so badly damaged that it was un-drivable has been locked up for ten months.
Before Ipswich Crown Court today was 20-year-old Munsey Varnadore who admitted two offences of aggravated vehicle taking involving a Renault Clio and a moped and common assault.
The offences happened in Ipswich on December 8.
Joanne Eley, prosecuting, said Rhys Francis, the owner of the Renault Clio, was forced by Varnadore and a 17-year-old youth to let them drive his car.
The vehicle was left badly damaged after the 17-year-old lost control while he was driving it with Varnadore in a passenger seat.
