Festive shoplifters had a busy December
It wasn’t just the Christmas shoppers who were flocking to buy their festive presents, the Yuletide shoplifters were also very busy.
During December, one serial thief stole 22 boxes of After Eights and nine boxes of Ferrero Rocher chocolates. Another stole gift sets valued at £180.
Yet another swiped Christmas themed products valued at £200 and one even stole a Christmas tree.
It seems it’s never too early to stock up on stolen festive booty. No doubt many of the goodies stolen ended up being given to lovers or friends as kind-hearted “presents” or being sold to raise some Christmas cash.
Here’s a top 20 rundown on December’s most brazen shoplifting hauls, in cases heard at Grimsby Magistrates’ Court . 1) 22 boxes of After Eights, nine boxes of 12 Ferrero Rocher chocolates and nine boxes of Lily O’Brien’s chocolates
For sheer cheek, top placing must go to the sweet-toothed thief who stole all that chocolate, valued at £139, from a Spar store.
Steven Oulton, 35, of Church Street, Conisbrough, Doncaster, was jailed for 14 days after pleading guilty to four thefts in Scunthorpe. 2) A bottle of Courvoisier Brandy and two packs of rump steak
