From a Northern newspaper A TEENAGER who stole and wrote off a Â£100,000 ambulance was jailed for three years today. Public menace Steven McGladdery, 19, wandered into a house where the crew were treating a casualty and stole the keys from a paramedic's pocket. He then led police on a 60mph pursuit through a Middlesbrough housing estate on February 8 before crashing the Mercedes Benz ambulance into a wall and a car. McGladdery, who was on his third Anti Social Behaviour Order (ASBO) for stealing a car and ramming a police car, was found hiding by a police dog. McGladdery, of Moorbeck Way, Ormesby, was sentenced to three years in a young offender's institution, disqualified for four years, and given a fresh ASBO for three years on his release. He pleaded guilty at Teesside Crown Court to aggravated vehicle taking, driving while disqualified, no insurance and breach of an ASBO. THIRD ASBO??? So yes, ASBO's obviously do work then. He's nineteen and gets sent to a young offenders' institute for a paltry three years. We've got lads younger than him fighting for the country and this waste of space interferes with an emergency and destroys a valuable community resource and gets three years (ie. eighteen months) in a soft prison.
