AN ABERAERON man has been jailed for 10 weeks by magistrates after assaulting a man he stole computer equipment from.

Pablo Oram, of Trecregyn, Castle Lane, appeared before Llanelli Magistrates’ Court on 8 September.

The 39-year-old pleaded guilty to assaulting Gary Matthewson in Aberaeron on 6 September.

Oram also admitted stealing computer equipment and an airsoft weapon from Mr Matthewson.

Magistrates jailed Oram for 10 weeks, saying the offences “are so serious that only a custodial sentence can be justified” because Oram “has a flagrant disregard for court orders, people and their property.”

Oram must also pay £85 costs and a £154 surcharge.
