Guram Sikharulidze jailed for a year after breaching Asbo to steal from a Range Rover

A prolific thief who breached an Asbo to steal from a vehicle in a NCP car park has been brought to justice and jailed thanks to Brent Police.

Guram Sikharulidze ignored an order banning him from stepping foot in Westminster or entering any NCP car park in London to carry out the theft – unaware he was being watched by officers.

Hendon Magistrates’ Court heard the 25-year-old was being tailed by Brent detectives when he was seen entering a NCP car park in Marble Arch before grabbing a fire extinguisher off the wall and using it to smash the rear window of Range Rover.

He made off with a suitcase and a Selfridges bag and was arrested nearby.

Two days later admitted theft from motor vehicle, conspiracy to steal, possession of cannabis and breach of an Asbo.

He was jailed for a year.

Detective Constable Dax Hollick said: “Sikharulidze historically committed offences in Westminster Borough, however, by venturing on to Brent he came to our attention, was targeted, arrested and convicted.

“Sikharulidze has been a plague to NCP and hotel car parks in the London area. The fact that he had an ASBO banning him from Westminster Borough and all NCP car parks in England and Wales indicates how prolific this criminal was.

“Hopefully people can now park their vehicles in NCP car parks without suffering the upset, damage and theft caused by this criminal.”
