The iPod-wielding leader of a gang of car thieves has been given a two-and-a-half year jail sentence, the BBC reports.

As reported last month, Oludayo Adeagbo was caught because he stored a variety of forged documents relating to the thefts on his iPod.

His gang would steal people's identities to take out finance agreements on premium marque cars, including Jaguars, Mercedes, BMW's and a Porsche. It would then sell these motors on.

A mass of evidence relating to these crimes was found "stored on an iPod", the report claims. The Adeagbo has been jailed for two-and-a-half years.

After Adeagbo's sentencing, Det Con Philip Plaskett said "While he notched up a criminal first in his unorthodox use of the iPod he still ended up facing the music."
