Steven Evans jailed for stealing laptop from Llanelli court

A thief who walked into a magistrates' court and stole a laptop belonging to a prosecuting solicitor has been jailed for 28 days.

Steven Evans, 30, who admitted theft, was filmed on CCTV strolling out of Llanelli magistrates' court with the computer stuffed up his jumper.

Police recognised him and he was arrested later the same day.

Swansea Crown Court heard the solicitor had left the laptop on the bench in court while he was at lunch.

The court rooms are now locked whenever staff are not present.
