Barrow shoplifters decided they ‘may as well’ steal items

A TRIO of supermarket shoplifters have been fined after attempting to steal more than £300 of goods.
Jay Lea Crowther, Yvette Jane Haston and Rebecca Waite all pleaded guilty to theft in Furness Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
The trio had been on a day trip to Barrow from Millom on July 10 when they loaded £319.29 of clothes, cosmetics and alcohol into a trolley in Asda and walked straight out of the shop door – only to be caught by security guards and marched back inside.
Mrs Lisa Hine, prosecuting, said: “All these parties were in Asda on July 10 and were monitored on CCTV by the security guard.
“He watched them place numerous items in the trolley after walking up and down aisles.
“They walked to the tills and hung around for a few seconds and left the store with Haston pushing.
“They were stopped and they got the items back.”
Mrs Hine told the court Crowther, 19, of Croft Close, Millom, told police they had gone to Asda and thought they “may as well rob it”.
Crowther appeared wearing shorts and a T-shirt alongside Haston, 23, of Beck Farm, Millom, and Waite, 25, of King Street, Millom.
None of the defendants was represented by a solicitor at the hearing.
Crowther told the court his father would be paying the fine imposed by the court, as he himself had no money.
Mr George Butler, presiding magistrate, said: “The three of you, this is your first offence brought to court. This is not amusing.
“You have now got criminal records and it will make it difficult to gain employment.
“You need to take this seriously.
“You do not want to be going out stealing from stores and committing crimes.”
The magistrates fined Crowther £75. He was also ordered to pay £85 court costs and a £20 victim surcharge.
Haston was fined £75 and ordered to pay £85 court costs and a £20 victim surcharge.
Waite was fined £50. He was also ordered to pay £85 court costs and a £20 victim surcharge.
