A man trashed three cars in a village, a court has heard.
Lee Paul Cookson, of West Square, Longton, Preston, has been given a community order for the offences.
He appeared before South Ribble Magistrates Court in Leyland on August 30 where he pleaded guilty to three counts of committing criminal damage.
It follows an incident on August 6 this year.
The court heard whilst in Longton, the 35-year-old caused an unknown amount of damage to a Ford Fiesta Zetec belonging to a woman.
He then caused £300 damage to a blue Vauxhall Zafira car belonging to another woman in the village on the same day.
He also damaged a silver Nissan Micra car belonging to a local man, though the cost of the damage is unknown.
Cookson was given a community order .
It will include 12 months supervision by the probation service.
The magistrates bench ruled Cookson must also pay a victim surcharge of £60.
However, they did not order him to pay any compensation to his victims because of his “limited means”.
