A MAN has been jailed for nearly nine months and ordered to pay compensation for crimes including burgling a gallery and shoplifting at a chemist.

Daniel Crawley of Woolf Close, Thamesmead, was sentenced at Dartford Magistrates Court last Thursday to 270 days in prison and ordered to pay £380 in compensation.

The 28-year-old was arrested by North Kent police a day earlier in connection with a break in at What If?... gallery in Dartford high street on June 12.
