A TEENAGER who ordered more than £100 of food and drink at a Worcester restaurant and left without paying has been given more jail time.

Connor Reeve ordered £148.74 worth of food and drink from Hickory's Smokehouse restaurant in Cripplegate Park on September 1 this year, but dishonestly made off and avoided making payment. 

The 19-year-old, of Buckland Road, Childswickham, near Broadway, had also admitted three charges of theft from a shop.

On August 30, Reeve stole £90 worth of vape pens from Worcester Service Station, Henwick Road.

And on September 9 Reeve stole various snacks and drinks, valued at £28.15 from Co-op in Twyford near Evesham.

Reeve's sentence had been delayed but went ahead at Worcester Magistrates Court on Friday, January 26. 

The defendant was jailed for 14 days, magistrates saying only a custodial sentence could be justified in his case.

No order for costs or compensation was made. 

We reported in December Reeve was jailed for a series of burglaries when he appeared at Worcester Crown Court. 

Reeve admitted the burglaries of three homes in the city and a commercial property in Evesham which took place last year.

In the same month, he also broke into the home of a family in Lansdowne Street and took the keys to a VW Passat before stealing it from the driveway.

In October, Reeve stole jewellery from a home in Tearne Street while the victim was away.

He also burgled commercial premises in Ashton-Under-Hill, Evesham, stealing stock worth more than £10,000.

In that case Reeve was given a 36-month custodial sentence. 

A West Mercia Police spokesperson said: "As a team we hope this sentence brings some closure to the victims of these offences and sends a clear message at how seriously these offences are taken."
