A SERIAL shoplifter who went on a three-day stealing spree was in custody because of his 'flagrant disregard for court orders'.

Byron Corbett-Stanley, of no fixed abode, was jailed after stealing from Sainsbury's in Blackpole and Tesco in Warndon Villages over three days.

He pleaded guilty to three charges of theft from shop which was taken into account at Kidderminster Magistrates Court on Monday (April 15).

Corbett-Stanley was in custody because he had "a flagrant disregard for court orders". 

A gift set and consumables worth £50 were taken from Sainsbury's in Windermere Drive on Monday, April 1.

The following day he stole alcohol and consumables from the same supermarket, worth £51.28.

The 20-year-old then went into Tesco in Mill Wood Drive on Wednesday, April 3 stealing £200 worth of alcohol.

Corbett-Stanley must pay £101.28 and £200 compensation though no order for court costs was made to give priority to paying the compensation.  

For the second and third offences, Corbett-Stanley was given four weeks imprisonment because "the offence(s) are so serious that only a custodial sentence can be justified".
