Prolific Worksop shoplifter who targeted stores at "an alarming rate" is jailed
A woman has been jailed for stealing from shops in Worksop and breaching her bail conditions from previous shoplifting offences.
Ann Marie Fitzpatrick, aged 49, of Rayton Spur, Kilton, Worksop, was sentenced to 10 weeks imprisonment when she attended court on Friday, December 17.
Officers from the Worksop town centre beat team attended the home of Fitzpatrick on Thursday, December 16 after it was reported she had committed a shop theft at a local store.
The theft also breached Fitzpatrick’s bail conditions from being previously charged with two shoplifting offences.
Fitzpatrick was charged and remanded to attend court on December 17, where she pleaded guilty to all three shop thefts.
Town centre beat manager and arresting officer PC Eoin Wilson said: “Fitzpatrick is a prolific shoplifter who has targeted Worksop’s town centre stores at an alarming rate and continued to commit offences over the festive period.
“This sentence should act as a wake up call for her and we hope it will be the last Christmas she decides to do this.”
