HALF of a thieving duo caught stealing from a farm, before colliding with a tree and leaving their van number plate behind, has been given a four-month curfew.
Duncan Brittain was given a four-month electronic tagging order, keeping him at home every night between 7pm and 7am.
Brittain, 31, formerly of Fenland Way, Chatteris, chose to have the curfew operated from his girlfriend's home at Childersgate Lane, Sutton St James. He must pay �60 costs.
Ely magistrates adjourned the sentencing of co-defendant Freddie Shepherd, 33, of Fenland Way, Chatteris, for seven days, for him to be legally represented.
