A HEREFORDSHIRE man has been recalled to prison after his release two days ago.

Mitchell Starkey was jailed for 16 weeks in March after entering guilty pleas to one charge of theft from a vehicle, one of driving without insurance, one of taking a vehicle without the owners' consent, one of theft from a shop, and one of driving while disqualified.

The court heard from prosecutor Alina Iqbal in March that the 25-year-old had stolen a Volkswagen car key worth £150 in Hereford between January 31, 2020, and January 1, 2021, and had taken a silver Peugeot 307 without consent in Bromyard on March 6.

He had driven the same car while disqualified and without insurance in Panniers Lane, Bromyard, on the same date, the court heard.

He had further stolen three cans of Monster Energy drink worth a total of £4.50 from Bromyard's Co-operative supermarket on March 11.

Bromyard police constable Lowri Jones said that Starkey, who was released from prison on May 22, has today (May 24) been recalled to prison for breaching his licence conditions.

Mitchell Starkey, who is of no fixed address, also has a Community Protection Notice which prohibits him from entering Bromyard due to his offending in the Bromyard area. 

Police this morning located Mitchell Starkey at an address in Bromyard and he is now back in custody.
