10 weeks for homeless man who broke into car

A man has been sentenced to 10 weeks in prison for the criminal damage of a car. Salem Mabrok of no fixed abode was seen by an off-duty police officer breaking into a car in Laguna Estate last December. The police were called and found him in the car with one of the windows broken. A search revealed he had a screw driver on him. Mabrok denied taking anything from the vehicle - it was later confirmed he had not. At the Magistates’ Court the defendant apologised and said he wouldn’t do it again. He already has multiple previous convictions for similar offences.
