A hapless joyrider who recorded himself boasting about his crime on the stolen car’s dashcam moments before he crashed into a wall was spared jail.

Kevin Moss, 28, calls his friend to say ‘I’m in trouble mate’ and then admits: ‘I’ve just stolen a car and I’m taking it for a joyride boy.’

Moss then smashes the vehicle into a wall on Constitution Hill in Woking, just minutes after he drove it away last June 26.

The thief was nowhere to be found, but police downloaded the car’s dashcam footage and Moss’s DNA was found on the steering wheel.

He was sentenced to one year imprisonment, suspended for two years and ordered to complete 200 hours of unpaid community work.

Moss was also ordered to pay £1,000 in compensation to the victim.

Temporary Sergeant Christopher North said: ‘Not only did Moss burgle a home and take someone else’s property for his own enjoyment, he also went on to endanger the public by driving recklessly and carelessly through residential roads.

‘I hope that this investigation shows that we will not tolerate this kind of senseless behaviour in Surrey.’
