A THIEF has been up before the magistrates after stealing £100 worth of meat from an Aldi supermarket.

Jane Morse appeared before magistrates in Kidderminster in March accused of one count of theft from a shop.

The court heard from prosecutor Melanie Winterflood that Morse was accused of stealing six lamb and beef joints worth a total of £100 from Leominster's Dishley Street Aldi supermarket on November 15.


The 47-year-old, who was represented at the hearing by defence solicitor Adrian Roberts, entered a guilty plea to the charge.

Morse, of Sandpits Avenue, Ludlow, was handed a 12-month conditional discharge and ordered to pay compensation of £100 to Aldi.

She was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £100 and a £26 victim surcharge, which is used to help fund services supporting victims of crime.
