Illustrated Police News - Thursday 30 January 1936 MAN'S "ORGY OF CRIME" SENTENCED TO THREE YEARS' PENAL SERVITUDE His counsel having admitted that be had Indulged "in an orgy of crime," Victor Claude Sterry, 25, fruiterer, was Bedford Assizes sentenced by Mr. Justice Goddard to three years' penal servitude. Arrested In the early hours at Dunstable, Sterry had in his possession some articles he had stolen from the premises of Messrs. Parrott and Jackson, where he ripped open the back of a safe, and forced office doors and drawers. As he was being taken to the police station, Sterry broke away, and although pursued, succeeded in making his escape. Later he was traced to a garage at Islington. Sterry, who had been to Borstal and served 12 months for house- breaking, asked that 10 other offences - flve of breaking and entering, and five of stealing motor-cars - all committed at Luton during November and December, should be taken into consideration. Supt. Clarke reported that Sterry's practice was to go from London to Luton, commit an offence, and then steal car, in which he drove off. All the cars had been recovered, having been found abandoned in London. "It is quite obvious you are professional garage breaker," the judge told Sterry in passing sentence. --------------------------------------------------------- Victor was a boxer and we have some of his cups which he won as his daughter Maureen shared these with us when she was still with us.
