A PURSE thief has been given a conditional discharge.

Rodney Westlake had denied stealing the purse from Mojo’s bar, Albert Road, Southsea, on November 28.

But the 55-year-old, from Taswell Road, Southsea, was found guilty of theft by Fareham magistrates.

Westlake was given a 12-month conditional discharge and told to pay £200 costs.
