A RANGE Rover-driving thief with a penchant for Red Bull has been sentenced by magistrates.

Graham Llewellyn entered guilty pleas to one count of driving without a licence, seven counts of theft, and one count of driving without insurance when he appeared before magistrates in Hereford in May.

The court heard from prosecutor Lauren Millichip that Llewellyn had been caught driving a Range Rover without a licence or insurance in Ross-on-Wye's Wilton Road on March 13.


He had also committed a string of thefts in the town, including stealing cans of Red Bull worth £3.29 each from Bennetts Garage on January 15, twice on February 5, February 8, February 9, February 25, and March 1.

The 66-year-old was ordered to pay compensation to Bennetts Garage for each of the stolen cans of Red Bull and was fined £120 and received six penalty points for the driving offences. 

He was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £85 and a £48 victim surcharge.
