Main article content
A Nuneaton man has been jailed for 16 weeks for his prolific shoplifting.
Johnathan Laws, aged 39, targeted four stores in and around Nuneaton town centre on eight separate occasions between August 2020 and March 2021.
He stole numerous items including fake tan, cookies, coffee, meat, washing detergent, cheese, candles, electrical ear buds and a dash cam.
He was sentenced at Coventry Magistrates’ Court yesterday (Thursday 6 May) after pleading guilty to eight counts of theft.
PC Amandeep Sian said: “Johnathan Laws has been relentless in his shoplifting. Following each incident we have spent time gathering evidence to put before the court.
“I hope he spends his time in prison to consider his behaviour and seek help.
“Shoplifting is not a victimless crime, we all end up paying for the behaviour of a small minority. On top of this it causes stress and anxiety to shop workers.
“I hope everyone affected by Law’s crimes feel more at ease now he is behind bars.”
