Valentine’s Day: Slough residents’ crimes committed on February 14

VALENTINE’S DAY.

It’s a day for love, romance, expensive flowers, even more expensive greetings cards and last-minute table reservations.

But not for some.

We’ve had a look back through our archives to find convicts who committed crimes on Valentine’s Day in 2021.

Only two names appeared — which is a reassuring sign — but for the convicted pair last year’s Valentine’s Day will probably be a day to forget.

Here are their names and why they appeared in court.

ANDRZEJ KARCZEWSKI, of The Crescent, Slough, paid a huge bill for his reckless driving on Valentine’s Day last year.

The 35-year-old was caught speeding on Windsor Road, Slough — a 30mph road.

Karczewski’s speed was recorded at a staggering 55mph.

To make matters worse, the Slough man was driving without insurance and without a licence.
