Be warned car valeter's

Posted by DP (DP), 12 April 2004
I listened to Jeremy Clarkson on TV the other day who told of a man who would steal cars from showrooms, completely valet them and leave them close by to be found.

His rien of malicious valeting was bought to a halt when he was caught in the act and later sentenced to 6 years in prison as the crime was deemed by the judge as a danger to the public !!!!!!!!!!!!

It seems that unauthorised valeting is now a bigger crime then murder. Could we now see an era of clandestine car washing by torch light, who knows!

Do you think he would of had a harsher sentence if the cars were dirtier than showroom models?
