A Bermondsey man has received a conditional discharge after pleading guilty to causing criminal damage to a police car.
Steven Keam, of Neckinger Estate, used a debit card to scratch the side of the vehicle on February 17 in Enid Street, Bermondsey.
The 39-year-old appeared at Camberwell Green Magistrates’ Court last Thursday.
The prosecuting solicitor said: “He walked past the vehicle and took something out of his pocket. Officers saw him bend down and run his hand along and scratch the vehicle.”
Kean received a conditional discharge for 12 months, and was also ordered to pay £100 in costs.
