A serial thief from Wisbech who stole almost £100 worth of cleaning products and confectionery from Poundland during three separate visits - as well as using a stolen bank card to buy cigarettes - has been jailed for 18 months.
Kevin Holmes entered the town store on September 6, 7 and 13 and stole various cleaning items and confectionery.
Holmes, of Chapnall Close, also used a stolen bank card on September 11 to buy £96 worth of cigarettes from three different shops using contactless payments.
PS Kevin Sutcliffe said: "Holmes has a number of previous convictions and it is clear previous sentencings have not deterred his behaviour. I am pleased he is behind bars and off the streets of Wisbech."
The 37-year-old was arrested on September 18 after being identified from CCTV at one of the shops.
