Blackpool Magistrates' Court
Blackpool Magistrates' Court

A woman stole more than £400 of property from three shops in Blackpool.

Susan Boyle, 26, of Mowbray Road, Fleetwood, pleaded guilty to three offences of theft.

It is the prosecution’s submission she clearly has no intention of stopping shoplifting. It’s what she does

Jim Mowbray, prosecuting, said Boyle stole £344 worth of spectacle frames from Specsavers on September 8, followed by three cordless phones from B&M Bargains in October.

In November she took make-up costing £78 from Wilkinsons.

During one of the offences she was under a suspended prison sentence for theft.

The prosecutor added: “It is the prosecution’s submission she clearly has no intention of stopping shoplifting. It’s what she does.”

David Charnley, defending, said his client had issues with drugs and was on a rehabilitation order from the court.

Boyle’s case was adjourned and she will be sentenced at a later date by Blackpool magistrates.
