Shoplifter sent back to prison

11 Jan 2022

A Cambridge shoplifter has been sent back to prison less than two weeks after being released.

Samuel Green, 25, of North Street, Peterborough, was released from prison on 31 December (2021) after serving an eight week sentence for shoplifting. He was also handed a two-year Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO).

On 4 January, Green breached his CBO by visiting McDonalds in Rose Crescent.

He went on to breach it again twice on 8 January at McDonalds and in Sidney Street.

Green was arrested by officers later that day after stealing a bottle of gin from Sainsbury’s in Sidney Street.

At Peterborough Magistrates’ Court yesterday (10 January) Green was sentenced to 16 weeks in prison after pleading guilty to one count of theft and three counts of breaching his CBO.

His CBO remains in place not to:

  • Be on or within boundaries of Queens Road, Chesterton Road, Gonville Place and Fen Causeway
  • Enter any Marks and Spencer, John Lewis or McDonalds within boundaries of the M11, A14 and A11
  • Act in an anti-social or disorderly manner that causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more people within the boundaries of the M11, A14 and A11

PC Jacob Townsend, who investigated, said: “Green is a prolific thief with a number of previous convictions against his name. We hope this extended sentence in prison will give him time to consider turning his life around.”
