CHEESE thief Steven Browne has been jailed for 104 days.

The 22-year-old stole the £2.69 cheese from Aldi in Gamble Road, Buckland, Portsmouth.

At the time he was serving a community order for a previous offence of assault and criminal damage.

Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court heard that Browne had failed to turn up for unpaid work, which was one of the conditions of the order.

Browne, of Australia Close, Landport, Portsmouth, pleaded guilty to theft and admitted breaching his order.
