Dylan Taylor tried to steal a cash machine
A Devon man is finally beginning a prison sentence, for ram-raiding Trago Mills almost two years ago.
Dylan Taylor went on the run to South East Asia after the incident in December 2017, in which he tried to steal a cash machine.
He was convicted of the attack in 2018 at Exeter Crown Court, but absconded.
The 43-year-old, from Torquay, has now been brought back from Thailand, to start a seven-and a-half year sentence, with four months added on for failing to answer his bail.
An officer tweeted that this was the 'best arrest of the year'.

Best arrest of the year. Hope those responsible for locating and securing his detention get the credit due. Dangerous man.
Totally Disinterested in rehabilitation.
Highlights the flaw of Bail
