Eight weeks jail for shoplifter
A SHOPLIFTER swore at a judge as she was led away to serve an eight week prison sentence for stealing from a Chatteris supermarket.
Repeat offender Kirsty Mills admitted that she had stolen �44 worth of hair care products from the Co-op on Monday (August 30).
She went into the store to buy cigarettes, and was seen hiding the stolen goods in a handbag, prosecutor Nicola Rice told District Judge Ken Sheraton, sitting at Wisbech courthouse.
Mills offered to pay for the stolen hair care products, but had less than �6 in her purse, and no payment cards.
The 22-year-old, of Orton Goldhay, Peterborough, gave a false name when first apprehended, but later admitted her true identity to police.

Mitigating, Michael Hinchliffe said Mills was a former drug user, but was currently clear of drugs.
“She has been in and out of custody numerous times,” he said. “She had never worked in her life.”
