A 35-year-old Invercargill man was sent to jail last week for offences including stealing a car and trying to sell it to a car yard.

Regan Charles Lewis Elder appeared before Judge Kevin Phillips in the Invercargill District Court yesterday after admitting two charges of driving while disqualified, stealing a vehicle and breaching intensive supervision.

He was sentenced to one year and four months' jail, ordered to pay $730 reparation and disqualified from driving for one year and six months.

He was convicted and discharged for breaching intensive supervision.

Judge Phillips said Elder took a vehicle from outside a shop and drove it to a car yard the following day to try and sell it.

The vehicle was found two days later damaged beyond repair, he said.
