Shoplifters banned from shops across West Cumbria – Times & Star

Rice is banned from all shop watch premises in Workington and Cockermouth, One Stop in Seaton, Bamp;M and Matalan in Workington and Home Bargains in Whitehaven.

Whitehead appeared at Carlisle Magistrates#8217; Court yesterday (October 12) and was jailed for 147 days for assault and shoplifting offences.

#8220;The public are vital when it comes to making sure the terms of criminal behaviour orders are adhered to. I would urge any business or individual who sees the terms of the order being breached to make contact with the police.#8221;

A three-year criminal behaviour order was also secured against Gemma Rice, 26, of Headlands Close, Workington after she convicted of a robbery at One Stop in Seaton, three shoplifting offences at the same shop and stealing from Poundstretcher in Annie Pit Lane, Workington.

A shoplifter described by police as a menace to businesses has been jailed and banned from shops in two West Cumbrian towns.

He was also banned from entering any premises within the Workington and Maryport shop watch schemes, going into Workington town centre, or entering the town#8217;s Simply Food and Drink shop, Wine Cellar at Moorclose, Grisedale Store in Senhouse Street, or The Corner Shop and McColls in Fisher Street.

#8220;The lead up to Christmas often sees a rise in shoplifting offences. We will continue to work with local businesses to target those who commit such offences and, where appropriate, we will seek further criminal behaviour orders.
