Court Results

Man sentenced following shoplifting spree

A 40-year-old man has been sentenced following a three month
shoplifting spree.

Leeroy Simpson, of Croft Avenue in Long Eaton, pleaded guilty to
breaching a criminal behaviour order and ten shop thefts at Nottingham Crown
Court on 9 June.

The shoplifter’s haul included 16 bottles of self-tan, beef steaks and
boxes of washing powder, in a series of thefts he committed between 16 February
and 1 May.

Simpson stole from the Co-Op on Bracebridge Drive four times, once on 18 April,
twice on 19 April and once on 1 May.

His other targets
were Sainsbury’s in Watnall Road in Hucknall on 16 February, Go Outdoors on
Mansfield Road in Daybrook on 25 February, Superdrug in Main Street in Bulwell
on 19 March, Heron in Bracebridge Drive in Broxtowe on 23 April, McColls in
Broxtowe Lane in Broxtowe on 24 April, Wollaton Vale Service Station in
Wollaton Vale, Wollaton, on 1 May.

PC Keith Parkes of Nottinghamshire Police said:
“Simpson has repeatedly helped himself to goods from shops at the expense of
the business owners.

“We know what an impact shoplifting can have on
businesses in our community, which is why I’m pleased we have been able to put
Simpson before the courts to answer for his actions.”
