A Slough man has been jailed for 22 weeks after going on a shopping spree with bank cards stolen from a car in Windsor.

Adam Higgins, 31, of Derwent Drive, Slough, pleaded guilty at the town's magistrates court on Wednesday to theft from a motor vehicle and ten counts of fraud.

He broke into a vehicle parked in Adelaide Square, Windsor on Tuesday, July 3 and stole a wallet containing cash and bank cards.

Higgins then used the bank cards at a number of stores in the Windsor and Slough area the following day.

He was charged with the offences on Wednesday, September 5.

Investigating Officer Detective Constable Martin Key, of the Investigation Hub at Maidenhead police station, said: “I am pleased with the sentence that the court has imposed.

“Theft from motor vehicles cause victims undue stress and often the items taken can be of a sentimental value.”
