A man who stole a Saudi Prince's Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe by conning the DVLA has been jailed for four years and two months.

Mohammed Humza filled in a DVLA form falsely claiming he was the owner of the Sheikh's £97,000 car, according to Court News UK. 

The man was then able to order new keys for the car, which was parked in London’s Mayfair district, allowing him to drive it away easily.

Humza then sold the vehicle to Shaks Specialist Cars, Huddersfield for £27,500.

He also sold the company a blue BMW 5 Series and a white Mercedes-Benz A Class.

At the time that Humza submitted the form to the DVLA claiming ownership of the car, Sheikh Alibrahim was abroad and unable to reply on the matter, according to The Sun.

He claimed that the car was checked every week and the only two people allowed to drive it are himself and his chauffeur.

Humza was charged with one count of theft and five counts of fraud by false representation.
