Snettisham man with 110 previous offences on record stole ready meals, cider and wine from Co-op store
A prolific offender from Snettisham has added another theft to his record.
But Peter Fellowes told magistrates his shoplifting days are over.
He had convictions for 110 previous offences before admitting to swiping ready meals, cider and wine worth £15 from his village’s Co-op store.
Lynn Magistrates’ Court was told on Thursday that the 46-year-old was arrested after being identified from CCTV stills.
He admitted the January 16 theft and breaching a community order imposed in November last year.
Fellowes, of Sheldruck Drive, said in mitigation: “I’m sorry, it won’t happen again.”
A probation officer told the hearing that the defendant was “on a really good path” after a shaky start to the community order.
Fellowes was told to pay £15 compensation to Co-op. There was no order for costs.
