A would-be criminal blocked a road with a stolen boat he was attempting to move while he went looking for a spanner.
Andrew Surgenor was moving the boat with his 4×4 to cover some of his drug debts he realised he didn’t have the right wheels, and then he found he didn’t have the right spanner. He left the boat, along with his number plate, blocking a country lane – where police officers found it.
While sentencing him at Exeter Crown Court, the judge told Surgenor his approach to the task was inept.
