A Pembroke Dock man who forged a cheque for £22,000 has been sentenced to an additional 14 months in jail.

Rhys Blow, aged 29, is already serving a 30 month sentence after he drove away in another man's car with the owner's six year old daughter on the back seat.

Blow, who lived in London Road before being jailed last July, admitted attempted fraud on Friday.

Swansea crown court heard how he had been a chef at the Lamphey Hall Hotel and crept into the manager's office and stole a blank cheque.

Blow, who was drinking heavily at the time, was sacked the following day.

The day after that, said the judge Mr Recorder Greg Bull, Blow filled in the cheque making it out to himself in the sum of £22,000.

Blow tried to cash the cheque at a local Barclays but the staff became suspicious and refused to honour it.

David Williams, the barrister representing Blow, said he had been questioned by police about the matter after he had been arrested for the drink drive offence involving the girl.

On that occasion he climbed into the driver's side as the owner refuelled at the Texaco garage on the Withybush industrial estate in Haverfordwest and drove away with the owner trying frantically to hold on.

Blow crashed the car a few seconds later.

Mr Williams said he should have been sentenced for both sets of offending back in July, 2017.

Mr Recorder Bull said he would have received a consecutive sentence in any event.

He said Blow had made a determined but also drunken attempt to get a large sum of money from his employer and his offending represented a serious breach of trust.

The 14 month sentence, he added, would run immediately.
