A MAN who was found guilty of trespassing and stealing from a Barrow lockup has been sentenced to 14 weeks in prison, suspended for 12 months.

Robert Benjamin Carroll, 33, of Argyle Street, Barrow, denied trespassing onto the property and stealing cable and a ratchet strap - but was found guilty after a trial.

Carroll is subject to an electronically monitored curfew for a period of seven weeks, between the hours of 7pm and 7am. He has been ordered to pay compensation of £50, a surcharge to fund victim services of £122, and £300 to the Crown Prosecution Service.
