A SERIAL shoplifter has been ordered to complete rehabilitation after taking hundreds of pounds worth of goods.

Aimee Tucknott admitted stealing from the Beales department store on five separate occasions between January and April this year.

The 33-year-old from Brighton Road in Lancing first took underwear worth £42, then went on to steal Lego sets worth £295, a Ninja Turtle toy worth £195, and a £50 TDK speaker.

She appeared at Worthing Magistrates' Court on Monday where she was ordered to pay an £85 victim surcharge.

Magistrates also told her to complete 25 days of rehabilitation in the next 12 months.
