Evesham man jailed for link to 'high-value' Bidford thefts

Evesham Editorial 17th Apr, 2023   0

AN EVESHAM man linked to a theft in Bidford has been sent to prison for more than three months after breaching his community order.

Officers from the force’s Rural Crime Team arrested Tony Davis on Wednesday (April 12) after he was linked to a theft on March 31.

The site had been targeted several times with a number of high-value thefts including plant machinery and insulation being taken.

Subsequent searches were carried out by the Rural Crime Team at an associated site, and further machinery was recovered.

As Davis, of Rynal Place, had already been issued with a community order on March 17, he was remanded in custody and appeared before magistrates in Coventry on Thursday (April 13).

The 34-year-old was sentenced to 14 weeks imprisonment for theft – other including theft by finding and eight weeks for committing an offence while a community order was in force.




He was also handed a four-week sentence for criminal damage to property valued under £5,000, which will be served at the same time.

Chief Insp Steve Davies said: “As the lead for Rural Crime in Warwickshire, it is pleasing to see the collaborative approach has resulted in Davis being jailed.”


“The subsequent recovery of high value property is the reassurance our communities need, and reinforces our commitment to protecting our rural areas.”
