Thief, 16, targeted two charity shops
TWO Bodmin charity shops were among premises in the town targeted by a 16-year-old thief.
The boy pleaded guilty to four offences of theft and two of possession of cannabis when he appeared before Bodmin Youth Court on Monday.
Imposing a 12-month youth rehabilitation order on the boy, with a 60-hour activity requirement and a compensation order, chairman of the bench Edward Paull told him: "The court has had enough of you – and no doubt the community has too. It's time for you to take responsibility."
Terry Eastwood, for the prosecution, said that on August 17 the boy stole items from WH Smith in Fore Street, Bodmin. He then took Schnapps from Iceland in the town on September 6 and on September 18 and 19 he stole from the Mind and Barnardos charity shops, although goods were recovered. He was also found with cannabis in September and October.
