Yeovil shoplifter jailed

A shoplifter has been jailed for 48 weeks after stealing items from supermarkets in Yeovil. Billy Chapman, of no fixed address, stole cleaning products and alcohol from two stores. At Yeovil Magistrates Court yesterday (Tuesday 18 October) the 41-year-old pleaded guilty to four theft charges. He also pleaded guilty to four counts of breaching a criminal behaviour order. This had been handed down previously for similar offences.

The offences took place during September and October this year.

Chapman received a 48-week prison sentence after magistrates activated a suspended sentence.

PC Jim Card said: “Billy Chapman has a long history of theft offences and we welcome the significant custodial sentence he has received.”
