MINI Worker Jailed For Stealing 1,000+ Catalytic Converters

According to The Oxford Times:
THE mastermind behind the theft of more than 1,000 catalytic converters at the Cowley Mini Plant was brought back to court after he made up a letter used in mitigation.

Lee Loveridge, of Plover Drive in Greater Leys, was handed a sentence of 10 months suspended for 18 months at Oxford Crown Court on Thursday.

But yesterday, the father-of-six was jailed for 14 months after it was found a character reference letter thought to be from his own employer was in fact written by him.

Loveridge and Luke Trotman both pleaded guilty to stealing £67,000 worth of catalytic converters from October 2014 to February 2015. . . .
