A Southland man who acted as a lookout during a burglary appeared in the Invercargill District Court yesterday.

David Bowman, 27, was sentenced by Judge Kevin Phillips to three months community detention, 100 hours' community work and ordered to pay reparation of $3391.62 for burglary on October 23.

Judge Phillips said although Bowman had acted as a lookout while his accomplice entered the property, he had still played an "active part" in the burglary, cutting up the stolen wire to take it away.
