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.
Appearing in front of the Isle of Wight Magistrates Court, Newport, he admitted burglary and was jailed for 27 months.
