Fudge thief swears as he is sent to prison
A SHOPLIFTER has been jailed for five days after stealing Â£17 worth of fudge.
Jimmy Andrews, 21, was led down from the dock swearing at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court as he was jailed.
He had previously been handed a suspended term for shoplifting, and another conditional discharge after that was imposed last year.
Andrews, of Old Road, Gosport, also owed around £1,000 for previous court costs.
District judge Anne Arnold said: ‘You were warned as to the consequences.’
He admitted the theft at Co-op in Palmyra Road, Gosport on December 12 on a ‘complete downer’.
He got five days for the fudge theft, five for the previous costs owed to court and five for the suspended term, all to run alongside each other.
