Following an investigation by Thames Valley Police, a man has been jailed for shoplifting offences in Reading.
Kingsley Haughton, aged 47, of no fixed abode, was jailed for 16 weeks at Reading Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday (13/12).
Haughton pleaded to three counts of shoplifting at the same court hearing.
He stole 18 bottles of wine from the Co-Op store in London Road, Reading, on 11 and 30 October this year.
He was arrested and charged on 21 November.
Neighbourhood officer, PC Vince Moore said: “Shoplifting is not a victimless crime. The financial and psychological impact on business owners and staff cannot be underestimated.
“Following a thorough investigation by Thames Valley Police, I’m pleased that faced with overwhelming evidence, Kingsley Haughton pleaded guilty to three counts of shoplifting and has been jailed.
“I hope this case serves as a warning to shoplifters that Thames Valley Police will investigate and bring offenders before the courts.”
