A man has been sentenced to community service for torching a pile of cash at his home. Leo Casey set fire to thousands of pounds worth of bank notes after an argument with his partner in July of last year. Nottingham Crown Court heard how the 63-year-old had burned the money after locking himself inside a property he was renovating in Sherwood, Nottingham, UK. When police arrived following a call from his partner Gabriella Augustynowicz, Casey set fire to a bundle of 20-pound notes and tossed them out of a window. Officers then noticed smoke coming from the Edgingley Road property, where Casey was torching a pile of money on the upstairs bathroom floor. Police were unable to determine the precise amount of money destroyed but estimated it at 17,000. Casey admitted to a charge of arson with reckless disregard for life.  He was sentenced on Monday to community service and will be under supervision for 18 months.                 -
