New Plymouth's former wheel clamper has been found guilty of acting as a property guard without a licence.

In the New Plymouth District Court today Judge Allan Roberts found Daniel Clout, in his 30s, guilty on charges of operating illegally as a clamper.

The judge-alone trial trial began in February with a series of witnesses, including the New Plymouth Mayor Andrew Judd. Some witnesses accepted they had been illegally parking at the time when they were clamped in either the Richmond Centre or King St car park.

The prosecution is believed to be the second taken by the Department of Internal Affairs under the Private Security Personnel and Private Investigators Act 2010.

Clout is currently unemployed and yet to be sentenced.
