Mytholmroyd Burglar Who Crashed Stolen Car Jailed

29 year old Anthony Ross has been sent to prison for over three years after the incident on New Year's Day.

A man who crashed into cars while trying to flee from a burglary has been jailed for over three years.

Anthony Ross, aged 29 from Hyde Park Road, Leeds, was jailed at Bradford Crown Court for burglary, dangerous driving, driving whilst disqualified and possession of cannabis.

Just after midnight on 1 January, Ross burgled a property on Stocks Gardens, Mytholmroyd, taking the occupant’s Mercedes A Class car.

Officers saw the vehicle leaving the scene before it crashed into parked cars in Northowram. He was arrested from the scene and charged on 2 January.

He's been sent to prison for three years and five months, as well as receiving a four year driving ban.

Detective Inspector Gary Stephenson, of Calderdale CID, said:

“Officers spotted the Mercedes driving on Burnley Road in the early hours of New Year’s Day.

“After signalling for Ross to stop the car, he proceeded to drive dangerously and without regard for people’s safety.

“Thankfully no one was injured, but he did cause damage to other people’s cars. He now has several years in prison to consider his actions.”
