A man who together with his brother was convicted for a string of raids at sports and social clubs has been ordered to pay back just £1.

Timothy Reeves, 40, formerly of Key and Castle Yard, Norwich, 
and Matthew Coward, 34, of Mill Road, Little Melton, were together responsible for a spree of burglaries carried out at sports and social clubs across Norfolk and Suffolk between 
February and April 
last year.

A total of 20 venues, 14 in Norfolk and six in Suffolk, were targeted by the brothers.

In April this year they were both sentenced to 28 months after admitting conspiracy to commit burglary.

Reeves was back in court on Friday as part 
of a Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) hearing.

The court heard his benefit figure was £17,214.38, but he was ordered to pay back just £1.
