Kidderminster man gave false names after buying fuel
11:30am Friday 10th August 2012 in News
A KIDDERMINSTER man gave false names on two occasions after buying more than £170 worth of fuel.
Daniel Oliver, 26, of Jubilee Drive, pleaded guilty to committing fraud and was sentenced to a 12-month community order with 150 hours of unpaid work in the community.
Kerry Lovegrove, prosecuting, told Kidderminster Magistrates Court yesterday that on June 13, Mr Oliver filled up his silver Ford Mondeo with £85 worth of fuel at a Tesco Express in the town.
As he did not have any money on him, he filled out a payment form using a false name.
He then did the same thing, using a different false name, on July 21, after filling the car with £88.06 of petrol.
The community order also covers an incident where Mr Oliver stole a pair of jeans worth £16 from Matalan in Kidderminster.
Magistrate Ken Hope said the bench took “a dim view” of the offences and told Mr Oliver his dishonesty was “something you need to sort out yourself”.
