Gran admits stealing food
GRANDMOTHER Jean Sturgess has been handed a community order after she stole from a shop.
The 54-year-old stole food and clothing from Tesco, Longton, on December 5, North Staffordshire magistrates heard yesterday.
Prosecutor Andrew Bodger said a security officer saw Sturgess enter the store with a trolley containing several of her own shopping bags.
He watched as Sturgess placed some items in the trolley and some in her bags. She then scanned items in the trolley but left without paying for the items in her bags.
