A LEARNER driver was arrested after he stole a car.

Eighteen-year-old Cameron Patrick, of no fixed address, took the red Volkswagen Golf from Milton Road, Milton, Portsmouth.

He pleaded guilty to taking the vehicle without the owner’s consent, driving without insurance and not in accordance with a licence when he appeared at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court.

District Judge Anne Arnold ordered him to have six months of supervision from the probation service to help him stay out of trouble. Patrick was banned from driving for six months.
