Man sentenced for possession of a knife - Reading

Alert message sent 06/06/2018 12:43:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

A man from Reading has been sentenced to 100 hours of community service after being found guilty of being in possession of a knife.

Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, Levi Heholt, aged 19, of Norfolk Road, Reading, was convicted of one count of possession of a bladed article and one count of receiving stolen goods in a hearing at Reading Magistrates Court last month.

He was found not guilty of one count of theft in a dwelling.

Heholt was sentenced on Monday (4/6) at the same court to a community order of 100 hours unpaid work to be completed over the next 12 months.

He was also ordered to pay an £85 victim surcharge and £200 in costs.

Heholt was found in possession of a knife in Whitley on Sunday 19 February 2017 along with stolen cash cards and a driving licence.

He was arrested on the same day as the offence and charged on 18 December last year.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Maggie Bruce, of the Investigation Hub in Reading, said: “Knife crime will not be tolerated in the Thames Valley, and we will investigate all such offences and put offenders before the courts.

“I just hope that Heholt can make positive changes in his life, rehabilitate and refrain from reoffending.”
