A shoplifter who was spared prison before Christmas has been jailed after going on a stealing spree and breaching a court order. Jordan Palmer, 31, was issued a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) in November last year after being convicted of 13 offences including theft from shops across Fenland, assaulting retail staff, obstructing police, possession of heroin and a public order offence.

The order, which is in place until November 2025, states she must:

  • Not enter any retail store within Horsefair Shopping Centre in Wisbech
  • Not enter any Asda in Wisbech
  • Not enter any Sainsbury’s in March

Between 15 December and 1 January, Palmer breached the order on six occasions by entering Asda four times and Peacocks in Horsefair twice, stealing items including alcohol, food, and clothing.

On 3 and 4 December she stole coffee and laundry products worth more than £100 from the Co-op in Town Street, Upwell, and alcohol worth £33 from Tesco Extra in Cromwell Road, Wisbech, on 27 December.

Palmer, of no fixed address, was arrested in Oil Mill Lane, Wisbech, on 4 January.

She appeared at Peterborough Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday (10 January) where she was sentenced to 12 weeks in prison – which includes the activation of a previously suspended sentence – after pleading guilty to nine counts of theft from a shop and six counts of breaching a CBO.

She must also pay £50 in compensation to both Peacocks and Asda.

PC Michelle Bax, who investigated, said: “Palmer was given a second chance by the courts when she was sentenced in November, having been given a suspended prison sentence and ordered to adhere to a CBO – she made little effort to stop her offending continued to commit crime in the areas she had been banned from.

“CBOs give us greater powers to tackle the behaviour of prolific offenders, meaning if they breach their conditions we can arrest them and put them back before the courts.”

Anyone with information about Palmer breaching the CBO should contact police via the web chat service or online forms at www.cambs.police.uk/report. Those without internet access should call 101.
