Beer thief must pay

Have your say

A THIEF has been told to pay more than £55 after stealing eight cans of Special Brew and a sandwich.

James Cannon, 31, took the items from Co-op in Privett Road in Gosport on March 27.

Magistrates imposed a 12-month conditional discharge on Cannon, of Hawkins Road, Gosport, and ordered him to pay a £15 victim surcharge and £40 costs to the Crown Prosecution Service.

The bench made a collection order to take the cash from Cannon’s benefits.
