Teen convicted over memorial wing theft

A teenager has been given a fine of over £800 and a driving ban of 18 months over the theft of a memorial RAF wing on the West Common earlier this year.

As previously reported, Levi Petitt, 18, was charged with the theft of a wooden sign, as well as driving over the legal alcohol limit on a motorcycle on Mitchell Drive in Lincoln where he lives on May 2.

The RAF 100 Voices memorial trail wing was ripped out a day after being installed before later being found undamaged a few yards away.

Mr Petitt appeared at Mansfield Magistrates Court on Thursday, September 27, charged with theft and drink driving and he was found guilty at the trial.

He was given a driving disqualification of 18 months and an £180 fine for in-excess alcohol. He was also ordered to pay £620 court costs, a victim surcharge of £30 and another fine of £60.
