Shoplifter jailed for 14 weeks

Published

on

lynxA PEMBROKE man appeared in Haverfordwest Magistrates Court on Tuesday to face two charges of theft. 

Dean Boswell, aged 35, of St Tyler Road, pleaded guilty to stealing two cans of Lynx and a bottle of ‘One Direction’ perfume. Prosecuting, Ellie Morgan said: “On April 30 at 4pm, the defendant entered Megans in Pembroke Dock and picked two cans of Lynx, and concealed them in his clothing. He left the shop without offer of payment and an employee noticed the items were missing. Boswell was identified on CCTV. “On May 1, Boswell entered Lloyds Pharmacy and went to the perfume counter where he took a bottle of ‘One Direction’ perfume and left the store, unnoticed by staff. An employee later noticed that the bottle was gone and was able to identify Boswell from CCTV as he was a regular customer. He said ‘Yes, I took it, I hold my hands up to it. I’m sorry’. A suspended sentence was imposed on the day of the second offence”. Defending, James Subbiani said: “Boswell was before the court on May 1 and was not fit for unpaid work at the time. For the last few months he has worked hard with probation and has found employment. He lives with his mother and is no longer misusing substances. He is involved with a project to raise money for a school in Romania and hopes to go out to Romania to help.” Probation officer, Julie Norman said: “Boswell left court on May 1 after a suspended custodial sentence had been imposed and went shoplifting.” Magistrates told the defendant: “When you left court that day you were aware of the suspended sentence and knew that you would go to prison if you committed any further offences. If we don’t activate it, it sends out a bad message to others. If we impose a suspended sentence, we mean it, and therefore are activating the 14 weeks custodial sentence.”

Willy make the council fix the road?

DRIVERS in and around the Maenclochog area are still recovering today after a hardened vandal spray-painted yellow penises along a stretch of road near Morvil.
The road, just off the B4313, was targeted with graffiti because of the number of potholes scattered along it’s length.
Locals have dubbed the cock-sure artist as ‘Wanksy’ and have discovered that whoever drew the penises also wrote ‘Follow the yellow d### road’.
Some of the penises have been drawn around more sizeable potholes, but simply pointing disapprovingly at the smaller ones.
If you want to report a pothole, the chosen method is still via the Pembrokeshire County Council website.
