/ Crasbo for man who systematically broke into cars

A man who broke into cars parked in the centre of Manchester has been given a two-year CRASBO.

Paul Hossner (born 6/3/77) of Croughton Close, Manchester was given the order after being convicted of four counts of theft from a vehicle at Manchester Magistrates' Court.

Another 15 offences were taken into consideration by the court.

He has also been sentenced to a 12-month Community Rehabilitation Order, supervision for 12 months and put on a 12-month drug rehabilitation programme.

Hossner systematically targeted cars at NCP car parks in the city between 27 September and 25 October 2012.

As part of the order, Hossner cannot enter any registered car park in the city or touch or get into any unattended vehicle without the owner's permission.

Sergeant Sarah O'Driscoll said: "Hossner has been a nuisance for many law-abiding users of Manchester city centre, many of whom park their cars here in order to get to work.

"We appreciate that vehicle crime is a major nuisance to people and I feel that this outcome is an effective resolution.

"This would not have been possible without close partnership working with Manchester city council and NCP car parks in the city."
