A Shanklin man who ‘hates Police’ has been jailed for 27 months after stealing from his own son, leaving a rather obvious clue behind.

Daniel Weller, 33 took a Wii games console and a laptop from his own son after taking advantage of having access to his ex’s property.

Unlucky for Weller, he knocked over a tin of white paint in his effort to make off with the goods, leaving a trail of footprints behind. It didn’t take long for Police to track down Mr Weller,  who was caught red handed with the electronics and covered head to toe in paint.
