A prolific thief has been jailed for 30 days after he was caught stealing Persil washing liquid.

Justin Fixter is well known as a shoplifter to the police.

He was arrested after stealing seven bottles of Persil, worth 28, from the Co-op in Elm Grove, Southsea on November 11.

At the time of the offence the 34-year-old was serving a community order for a number of previous thefts.

He had been given a community order in September last year at Portsmouth Magistrates' Court after being convicted of four counts of theft.

Fixter, of Hawthorn Crescent, Cosham, who has a number of other past convictions, pleaded guilty to theft and breaching the community order when he appeared before Portsmouth magistrates.
