A man who together with his brother was convicted for a string of raids at sports and social clubs has been ordered to pay back just £1.
Timothy Reeves, 40, formerly of Key and Castle Yard, Norwich, and Matthew Coward, 34, of Mill Road, Little Melton, were together responsible for a spree of burglaries carried out at sports and social clubs across Norfolk and Suffolk between February and April last year.
A total of 20 venues, 14 in Norfolk and six in Suffolk, were targeted by the brothers.
During the course of the burglaries there was a total loss of £47,619, including more than £17,000 worth of property taken and in excess of £30,000 worth of damage.
In April this year they were both sentenced to 28 months after admitting conspiracy to commit burglary.
