A man convicted of handling stolen goods has been given a suspended prison sentence.
Terrence Drewery, 59, had been found guilty of handling stolen goods following a trial earlier this year.
Norwich Crown Court had heard that a rented Mercedes car worth about £26,000 or £27,000, was taken from outside an address in March in May 2017.
The court heard the Mercedes, which was fitted with a tracker, was then broken up and had expensive parts taken off before it was later 'destroyed' in a fire.
Drewery, of Southery Road, Feltwell, was convicted of one count of handling.
