FOLLOWING a trial, a man has been found guilty of stealing a £127k car while the owner was visiting Windsor Castle.

Paulius Baltrunas, 33, was on trial at Reading Crown Court last week charged with stealing the Lexus SUV on May 3, 2021 together with another unnamed individual.

The defendant, of Ilford in East London, admitted he drove the car away from the King Edward VII car park but told the court he believed it had belonged to someone else.

However, a jury found him guilty of the theft on Tuesday (May 9).

On the day of the theft at about 1pm, the owner returned to the car park and reported his vehicle as stolen.

Baltrunas drove the car to Slough where it was later stopped by Metropolitan police officers. Two licence plates were found in the boot along with a signal jammer and gloves.

An eyewitness saw him with the stolen black SUV along with two other men and another vehicle, a black Mercedes.
