A thief has been fined £90 and forced to wear an electronic tag for three months after stealing from three vehicles, carrying a knife and possessing class A drugs.
Steve Carnegie, 46, of Beavor Lane, Brandon, appeared at Ipswich Magistrates Court accused of a number of vehicle offences in Brandon.
He was charged with five counts of interference with a motor vehicle, three counts of theft from a vehicle, as well as one count of possession of a knife or sharp pointed article and one count of possession of class A drugs.
