A WOMAN who shoplifted from the Tesco Express store in New Milton has been jailed for five months.


Lena Leanne Brown (30), of Andrews Lane, Ashley, admitted taking goods worth £53 from the Old Milton Road store on 30th November, and items worth £17.70 the following day.

Southampton magistrates gave her a one-month prison term in respect of those matters.

That was added to by a further four months after she admitted committing them while on a suspended sentence imposed by East Kent magistrates last November for a number of similar offences of theft.

The Bench also ordered Brown pay costs totalling £207.
