A 35-YEAR-OLD man from Thornbury has been handed an eight-week curfew for his part in the theft of car.

Kai Rossiter from the Gillingstool area was arrested by officers on Saturday at an address in Stafford Crescent.

He appeared before Bristol Magistrates Court yesterday charged with handling of stolen goods.

As well as being handed the community order, which restricts him to his home between 7pm and 7am, Rossiter was also ordered to pay £85 court fees and an £85 surcharge.
