Thirty-one coats – and a colour TV – worth £3,000 were stolen from Peterborough stores by a thief who has been given a court ban on entering certain shops for two years. Ashley Granger, 35, was arrested in Lincoln Road, Peterborough, on the afternoon of 22 November after he was caught stealing a television from Currys in Maskew Avenue Retail Park.

He was chased out of the store by security who detained him nearby until police arrived and arrested him for a total of nine shoplifting offences for which he was wanted.

“Having this order gives us greater powers to manage his offending – if he is found to breach the conditions, this is an arrestable offence, and he will be put back before the courts.”
