Two vandals who led a trail of destruction through Bury St Edmunds, causing thousands of pounds of damage, have been handed eight week suspended sentences.

Ty Chaplin, of Hanmer Walk, Bury St Edmunds, and Jonathan Glenister, of Ruffles Road, Haverhill, both 20, broke car windscreens and wing mirrors, removed car grill badges and smashed residential and pub windows in a ‘night of complete madness’ on March 3 last year.

Among the properties vandalised were the Dog and partridge Pub and the Old Cannon Brewery.

The pair appeared separately at Bury St Edmunds Magistrates’ Court today.

Sentencing Glenister, Presiding Magistrate, Chris Peters, said: “This was a night of complete madness wasn’t it.”

Both men were sentenced to eight weeks in a young offenders institution, suspended for one year.

Chaplin also received 200 hours of unpaid work and was told to pay back £2666.66 in compensation to those affected.

Glenister was given 150 hours of unpaid work and made to pay £2336.
