A teenager was arrested with spray paint all over his hands after damaging three cars parked in a Batley street.

Luke Foley, 19, admitted to criminal damage as well as possession of cannabis.

The incident occurred on Roman Road late on February 1.

The owner of a Vauxhall Astra was made aware of two youths hanging around in the street before discovering paint all over the bonnet.

A Peugeot 306 and Ford Transit van had also been damaged with paint.

Kirklees Magistrates’ Court heard that two of the vehicles had to be resprayed.

Foley now lives in Cleethorpes but used to live on the same street and there had been some issues between his family and the neighbours.

The court was told that he had chanced upon a spray can and decided to paint the vehicles.

Bill Astin, prosecuting, said: “He was arrested at the scene with paint all over his hands.”

The spray paint will be forfeited and destroyed.
