Published

on

courtA HAVERFORDWEST man who stole artificial flowers from a High Street charity shop appeared before the town’s magistrates on Tuesday.

Robert Anthony Parker, aged 30, of Dew Street, appeared before the court on five charges of shoplifting from various shops in the town.

Parker pleaded guilty to all of the charges. He was charged with stealing hair straightners and make up valued at £51.82 from Wilkinsons on January 3; stealing a bottle of Sidekick from Savers valued at £4.98; and to stealing artificial flowers from Barnados Charity Shop on January 5; stealing a snow shovel valued at £6 from Tesco Haverfordwest on January 15; and stealing food and magazines valued at £18 from the Murco Garage in Haverfordwest.

Prosecuting, Lesley Harbon told the court that the defendant had entered the Wilkinson store and was captured on CCTV putting hair straightners and make up in his coat pocket. She continued saying that on the afternoon of January 16 the defendant walked into the Murco garage and walked out without paying for a pasty, sandwiches and magazines. On being stopped by staff he simply left without paying and ignored the member of staff.

Defending, Mark Layton told the court: “Drink is the problem with the defendant, he had been settled for a while, the ball is well and truly in his court”.

On placing Parker on a 12 month community and supervision orders, he was also told not to enter licenced premises and was placed on an alcohol activity requirement order.

Parker was also fined a total of £225.50 which he agreed to pay fortnightly and was told that he should go and make a donation to the Barnados shop. “We don’t want to see you back”, magistrates told him.
