A FISHERMAN who stole a $990 custom-made scooter in Portland while drunk will now serve another jail term alongside his current sentence.
Aaron Christopher Evans, 22, of Casino Court, Portland, was late last month jailed for a minimum 20 months after pleading guilty in the Warrnambool County Court to aggravated burglary.
He used a baseball bat to smash into his ex-partner’s house in an effort to assault a love rival.
This week he pleaded guilty in Warrnambool Magistrates Court to theft, trespass and possessing cannabis.
He was sentenced to serve two months in jail which will be served concurrently with the term he is already serving.
Evans was fined $350, but also has outstanding fines of $1815 and will have to serve an additional 13 days in jail to cut them out before being eligible for parole.
Police alleged that on the afternoon of July 2 Evans and another man were drinking at a Portland hotel. They left the hotel at 5.41pm with Evans riding a bike without a helmet on the footpath.
He then stole a $900 custom-made scooter.
The scooter owner and his mother saw Evans on the scooter in Julia Street, and he tried to hide in a boat repair yard where he was found by police officers with the scooter.
Officers searched Evans and found he was carrying a bag of cannabis.
Magistrate Jonathan Klestadt said stealing the scooter had been stupid drunken behaviour and part of Evans’ involvement with the drug culture.
