A trio of prolific Sutton shoplifters have been convicted of theft at court.
Kerry Ann Causer (32), Daniel Roy Lynk (30), both of Outram Street, and David Timothy Wright (33), of Mapplewells Crescent, all appeared before Mansfield Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday (13th August).
The court heard that Causer had stolen meat from Asda in the town on 30th July and then more than £150 worth of medicine from Wilkinson’s on 10th August.
She was caught on CCTV and identified by officers who arrested her. She was sentenced to six months in prison.
Lynk also stole more than £150 of medicine from Wilkinson’s on 10th August. He was arrested along with Causer.
Magistrates gave him a community order for a year and he was ordered to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work.
Wright was caught stealing cider from Tesco on 3rd and 6th August. He was arrested and was sentenced to 24 weeks in prison, suspended for a year. He will also be the subject of a curfew.
Nottinghamshire Police Sergeant Martin Severn said: “Causer, Lynk and Wright have plagued shops in Sutton with their prolific thieving.
“I hope that these convictions show that Nottinghamshire Police work hard to reduce retail crime and ensure people can go about their daily business without fear of becoming a victim of crime.
“The message is clear – if you shop lift in our town you will be caught and brought before the courts.”
