Fenland shoplifter to spend Christmas in prison
A shoplifter who stole from Fenland shops will be spending the festive season in prison.

Three weeks later he returned to the same store and filled a bag with eight men’s toiletries sets, again leaving without paying for them.
On Sunday (5), he visited Sainsbury’s in Mill View, March, where he attempted to steal Gillette razors by concealing them in his waistband, but was challenged by security staff.
Police were called to arrest Joseph, who was later charged with two counts of theft from a shop and one attempted theft.
Joseph, of Creek Road, March, appeared at Peterborough Magistrates’ Court on Monday (6 December) where he admitted the offences and was sentenced to 20 weeks in priso
