Two shoplifters have been jailed for a combined 20 weeks.

Michael Reid, 52, of Mount Pleasant Road, Hastings, was jailed for four weeks at Brighton Magistrates Court while Patrick Reville, 49, of St George’s Road, Hastings, got sixteen weeks at Hastings Magistrates Court.

Reid pleaded guilty to stealing alcohol and food from three shops in Hastings between April 29 and May 19.

Reville pleaded guilty to stealing food and aftershave from four shops in Hastings between April 2 and April 11.

PC Nick Marriott, said: "These two convictions are encouraging for all shops who are members of the Shop Watch scheme.

“People with bans are recognisable to shop staff helping to make convictions possible.

“This is a really positive result for the town's many shops. Please keep your eyes open for shoplifters, they will be prosecuted."

No need.

As long as the shops in the area have their mugshots, that's all that matters.

shoplifting is wide spread and is not a victimless crime, you all pay for it in higher prices. shop lifting is a common method of raising money daily for drug addicts, alcoholics with high strength, low priced chemical cider available do not have to resort to it as much

Why would one be dealt with in Hastings (where all the offences occurred and where they both live) and the other in Brighton?

So he stole some aftershave? That will be a distinct advantage where he's going.
