Sam Watson aged 30, of no fixed abode, has been sentenced to 40 weeks in prison after being charged with 24 counts of theft and two counts of public order offences.
Watson was sentenced last week (Monday 9th October) following an investigation by the Stockton Neighbourhood Team.
Acting Sergeant Darren Hall from the Stockton Neighbourhood Team said: “Watson targeted retail premises in the Hardwick, Roseworth and Norton areas of Stockton over a period of weeks.
“He terrorised our local communities with his constant shoplifting and stole over £1,500 worth of items.
“We are pleased with the custodial sentence given to Watson as the impact of his crimes had a detrimental impact to retailers in our communities.
“The sentence also highlights that we do take shop thefts seriously and we will ensure we target offenders associated with this crime and bring them to justice.”
