Cambridge: Shoplifter Back In Prison
A shoplifter in Cambridge is back in prison just months after being released from another sentence.
Scott Reynolds, 26, of no fixed address, was released from prison on August 2nd after serving several months for theft offences.
Less than a week later he had been charged with two attempted thefts and bailed.
He breached this bail by going on a crime spree in Cambridge, which included thefts from the Co-op in Grantchester Street, Sainsbury's in Clifton Way and Ted Baker in the Grand Arcade.
On Wednesday (August 28th) he went into the Co-op in High Street, Fulbourn, at about 6.50pm and tried to steal 14 bottles of alcohol worth around £340.
He was challenged by the manager and dropped the alcohol but he managed to escape. Police officers eventually tracked him down and arrested him.
On Thursday (29th August) he was jailed for 26 weeks at Cambridge Magistrates' Court after pleading guilty to two attempted thefts, four thefts and one common assault.
Detective Sergeant Jamie Stenton said: "Reynolds is a prolific thief and this results shows that his crimes will not go unpunished. His crime affects many people in the city and they will be relieved that he is off the streets for the time being."
A plant housed in Cambridge, that smells of rotting flesh, is about to flower for the first time since 2005.
