A Corby criminal with a history of driving and theft convictions has been given another prison sentence after being found guilty of yet more offences.

Lee Annand, formerly of Beanfield Avenue but now of HMP Lincoln, appeared before magistrates last week to admit making off without paying for £112 of petrol in Corby in September last year. He also admitted another fuel theft offence from August last year as well as charges of driving without insurance and a licence in Gold Street, Northampton, in February this year.

Annand, 33, had initially denied the first two offences but pleaded guilty on the day he was due to stand trial.

Magistrates ordered him to 22 weeks in prison because of his long history of offending and ordered him to pay £132 in compensation. He was also banned from driving for a further two years.

Last August a warrant was issued for Annand's arrest after he broke the terms of his release from prison for another offence. In October he was imprisoned for 20 weeks after being convicted of dangerous driving and driving with no licence or insurance in Harlech, Corby. He also has a history of theft, car theft and driving offences.
