Drug dealer jailed after hiding crack for five days at police station

Have your say

THIEF Roy Carter has been ordered to stay in at night.

Carter, 49, admitted stealing goods worth more than £267 in nine separate thefts from Portsmouth shops in a one-man crime spree between May and September.

However the real figure is likely to be far higher as the value of some of the stolen goods is not known.

Carter, of Halstead Road, Paulsgrove, Portsmouth, admitted stealing goods from a Boots store in Portsmouth, clothes from New Look in Commercial Road, Landport, Portsmouth, on two occasions, jeans from Peacocks and leggings from New Look, both in Cosham High Street.

He stole dresses from Peacocks in Cosham High Street in a separate theft and clothes from Mackays in the same street.

Carter was told not to leave home between 11.30am and 7.30pm daily for 90 days and told to pay £55 compensation by Portsmouth magistrates.
