Sometime between 31st December 2015 and 2nd January 2016, St John Ambulance Hall in Abergavenny was broken into. During this burglary, £500 worth of damage was caused to property and over £200 worth of cash and vouchers were stolen. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

On 1st February, officers arrested 32 year old Andrew Viveash in connection with this offence. Due to the amount of evidence collected by officers, Viveash was charged with the burglary and remanded in custody, to appear at Newport Magistrates Court on 2nd February. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

At court, he pleaded guilty to the burglary and he received a prison sentence of 12 weeks and has to pay £80 surcharge and £795.83 compensation. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The investigating officer said ‘Viveash is a prolific offender who, despite assistance from Gwent Police, continues to commit crime regardless of the victim or consequences. We hope he uses the time in prison to make significant changes to his lifestyle choices’ ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
