A thief who breached a restraining order to steal a debit card and use it fraudulently has been jailed for more than half a year.
Paul Bliss, of no fixed address, entered a certain house in Ickleford as a trespasser on June 2 – ignoring a restraining order forbidding him to go there.
The 42-year-old stole a debit card and address book, and later that day used the card to gain £500 cash and items worth £29.
The next day, he used the card in Arlesey to get £400 cash.
Bliss pleaded guilty to theft, breaching a restraining order and two counts of fraud when he appeared before Stevenage magistrates last week.

Bliss must also pay £250 in compensation by February 28 next year.
