Since 2010, Spalding police had arrested 26 year-old Lucasz Jalocha dozens of times in relation to theft, burglary and drugs offences. His offences even included the criminal damage of a cell door whilst in custody for another crime.
He was last imprisoned for a burglary at a Spalding shoe shop last September.
Deportation orders of this nature are usually reserved for offenders who have served sentences of two years or more, and Jalocha’s maximum term had been 15 weeks. However a special case was made due to the rising number of offences he had been charged with.
Police are investigating after a 55-year-old man was found in the bottom of a roadside ditch with what is believed to be his bicycle.
The ditch had about 18 inches of water in the bottom. The man was certified as deceased at the scene.
The discovery of the body came at about 9:30pm on Monday evening and it was found that the man had been dead for some time.
Enquiries have begun to establish the movements of the deceased prior to his death.
The last confirmed sighting of him was by a neighbour at his home at around 10:00am yesterday morning.
The ditch referred to is near Gedney Hill Golf Club on West Drove North, Gedney Hill, Spalding
A post mortem will be carried out later today to establish the cause of death. Police are treating his death as unexplained.
Anyone who saw a cyclist near the golf club after 10:00am on Monday or who has any information is asked to call Lincolnshire Police via the non-emergency 101 number and to quote incident number 489 of 9th June.
