Ignis Thief: 12 Months
This 17th century tin-glazed porcelain figurine of Ignis, the personification of fire, was recovered after daft thief Jason Cochlin contacted a ceramics expert for a valuation (up to £160,000)! Ceramics expert contacts Police. Thief is collared. At Winchester Crown Court last week, Cochlin was found guilty of conspiracy to steal and was jailed for 12 months. Twelve months! Some deterrant! Which is more stupid: the thief or British justice?
