Some months ago, he reportedly stole a man’s phone and called the man afterwards demanding for £150 in exchange for his phone. He was convicted in 2005 for stealing from his employee. Police believe Oloruntoba had sold over 300 phones on online market, Gumtree.
He now works in customer services for Transport for Greater Manchester and Judge David Hernandez, sentencing, sought assurances that he would not be in contact with customer’s property.
Giving him six-months jail, suspended for a year, with 40 hours unpaid work, and an order to pay £500 compensation to his latest victim, Judge Hernandez told him: “I hadn’t thought I’d be seeing you again. But here you are, standing in the dock in relation to another offence of theft of a mobile phone”.
