The 30-year-old had received previous action to address his prolific shoplifting, including a community protection notice, which was issued in July 2023.  

Sgt Ali Tassie said: “This individual continues to commit shop theft offences on a regular basis in our community, which can have a big impact for both businesses and employees.  

"As a current Norwich policing priority, we will continue to work with our partners and businesses to help prevent future offending and to discourage this type of behaviour.”
