A prolific criminal has been ordered to do community work after a court heard how he targeted a store in a Norwich shopping centre.
Darrell Cubitt, 38, of Cadge Road, North Earlham, pleaded guilty at Norwich Magistrates' Court yesterday to stealing a razor, worth �97.89, from Boots at the Mall Norwich, and also going equipped to steal, both on February 4.
Prosecutor Lisa Britton said Cubitt placed the razor in a carrier bag lined with foil, but was stopped by security outside the store.
She said Cubitt had 42 previous convictions but the last was in 2000.

He was handed a 12 month community order and ordered to do 60 hours unpaid work. No order for costs was made.
