Suspended sentence for £100k Pirelli theft man

Although he claimed no intentional involvement in the theft of Pirelli tyres worth more than £102,000, Graham Wait was found guilty of conspiracy to commit theft in February. At his sentencing at Carlisle Crown Court last Friday, Wait received an 18 month suspended sentence for the role he played in the theft of 358 Pirelli tyres, and was ordered to pay £1,500 in court costs and to perform 200 hours of unpaid work.

Wait is one of three men linked to the sale of tyres stolen from Pirelli’s Dalston Road plant in Carlisle on eBay in 2013 and 2014. Former DHL shift supervisor Mark Claxton avoided prison when sentenced in February, while Barry White, an acquaintance of Graham Wait, was found not guilty in August 2015.
