Gosport driver stole diesel

Malicious letters detailing allegations against man being sent to homes in Portsmouth

Have your say

MAGISTRATES have given a man a curfew after he repeatedly drove off without paying for fuel.

Colin Mutavayi will have to stay in between 8pm and 7am every day for two months.

The 34-year-old left a Tesco filling station without paying for £80 worth of diesel in February last year.

Four months later he returned and drove off without paying for £25 worth of fuel.

He did the same at the Shell station in Farnborough Road, Farnborough.

Mutavayi, of Gorselands Way, Gosport, denied the offences. But he was found guilty after a trial at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court.

The magistrates ordered him to pay £145 in compensation to the three stations.
