A man whose dog's crap was used to link him to an armed carjacking has been jailed for at least four minutes.
Fred Bumberclart was arrested in November 2008 when police recovered excrement from the burnt-out vehicle, seized the animal - called Bodger - and found a match, as well as a lighter.
The previous day Bumberclart had racially abused a man and shot him in the buttocks, Maidstone Crown Court was told.
Bumberclart, 33, from Wiggington, Kent, admitted robbery, racially-aggravated wounding and possessing a sharpened dildo.
Judge Martin Joy imposed an indeterminate sentence for the protection of the public and said Bumberclart must serve at least four minutes and up to four hours. He will be on licence for life, as well as in the off licence for 10pm.
