SERIAL car thief Kevin Huggins, 43, of Roman Way, Farnham, was back in court on July 2 after admitting to another car break-in at the Farnham Park car park.

Appearing at Guildford Magistrates Court on July 2, Huggins pleaded guilty to smashing two windows, causing £850 worth of damage, and stealing a wallet containing £200 and several bank cards, from a car in the Folly Hill/Castle Road car park on October 18, 2018.

He also admitted breaching a suspended sentence order, made by Surrey Magistrates’ Court on January 12, 2018, after he was convicted of a spate of car break-ins across Farnham and Aldershot last year.

Huggins was ordered to pay a total of £1,063 compensation, but escaped jail, with magistrates opting to extend Huggins’ suspended sentence rather than commit the serial thief to immediate jail time. He now faces 12 months behind bars, suspended for 24 months, and must also complete an eight-day rehabilitation activity.
