312: Crim du Jour

A new series, in which I post real things that criminals get up to, taken from official court records.

Today's Crim du Jour comes to us from Mount Gambier, South Australia.

"The facts of the offences are relatively straightforward.  On 8 December last year you went to a car yard in Millicent to steal petrol. It was in the late evening. You punctured the petrol tanks of two vehicles and were in the process of collecting the fuel from the tanks when you lit a cigarette and an explosion and then a fire took place."

Result - 8 months in the Big House and 3rd degree burns all over the body. That's a winner!
