A MAN has admitted stealing a car before driving dangerously in an Oxfordshire town.

Billy Butler, of Pear Tree Walk, Carterton, pleaded guilty at Oxford Crown Court on Friday to a string of crimes including driving offences and handling stolen goods.

The 21-year old carried out the spree in Carterton last month, the court heard.

Butler admitted aggravated vehicle talking of a Peugeot 206 as well as dangerous driving, driving while disqualified, one count of handling stolen goods - a Canon camera, as well as damaging a rear view mirror of a vehicle, all on February 3 at Bluebell Way, Carterton.

Judge Nigel Daly ordered that the sentencing be adjourned while a pre-sentence report is prepared and he will be sentenced at the same court tomorrow.
