A man who was caught stealing Amazon parcels before smashing a car window at a cemetery has been sentenced to prison.

Mark Hobbs, 51, of Tadworth, was convicted at Croydon Magistrates’ Court after he was charged with theft and criminal damage.

He was seen stealing the Amazon packages from a porch in Beddington Grove this July, and later identified by officers according to Wallington North police.

Then he was arrested on August 30 after breaking a car window at Morden Cemetery near to Lower Morden Lane.

Hobbs was sentenced to 10 weeks' imprisonment following the incidents the next day.
