There are so many press reports recently of debtors being arrested and in this case, found guilty and sentenced to 8 months in prison (suspended). In this case the debtor's car had been moved onto a vehicle trailer by bailiffs from JBW Group and the debtor set the car on fire.
Link and word version of story below:
Desperate Bekim Recica, aged 42, set the Vauxhall Zafira ablaze as a recovery company prepared to remove it from outside his home, Plymouth Crown Court heard.
The father-of-five had earlier threatened to kill anyone who came near the vehicle.
Nobody was hurt but the car was wrecked and the low loader where it was sitting was damaged, the court heard.
Handing him a suspended prison sentence, Judge Paul Darlow told him: “It was explained to you that once the car was seized, it no longer belonged to you.
“You clearly armed yourself with petrol and made very determined efforts to set fire to the car despite very clear warnings.”
