A HARLOW man who had ammunition and also attempted to steal motorcycles and bicycles from a home in Bishop’s Stortford has been brought to justice following a hearing at St Albans Crown Court.

 

Darren Phaure, 21, of  yesterday (Tuesday, June 8) received 11 months in prison, suspended for 24 months. He had pleaded guilty to the offence and also possession of ammunition at an earlier hearing.

 

He was also ordered to carry out 180 hours of community service and will be on curfew between 8pm and 1am until August 2, 2010 and will not be allowed to enter licensed premises until the same date.

 

Phaure attempted to steal the items on Monday, September 7, 2009, at an address in Mathams Drive, but was chased by the owner. He was later arrested by officers as he returned to the scene to pick up his mobile phone, which he had dropped while running away.

 

The ammunition was discovered at his home address during a search by officers.

 

Detective Constable Dieter Sweeting, of the Local Crime Unit based at Hertford Police Station, said: “I am pleased Phaure has been brought to justice and has been punished for his crimes.

"We do not tolerate burglary in East Herts and nor the possession of ammunition, and we will always take robust action against offenders.”
