Raymond Dobson, 33, then stole £47 worth of items from the B&Q store. His defence said that he had committed the offence due to his benefits becoming frozen after he moved to the area to care for his mother.

Mr Dobson has 21 previous convictions for 42 offences, eight of which were for dishonesty in terms of theft, and five of which were fraud related. He was fined £170 for his offence against B&Q and ordered by Furness Magistrates Court to pay a total of £755 after missing previous payments for previous offences.

He should have been jailed, he has no income and is on benefits so where is he going to get the money to pay his fine, he will go into BQ or some other store and shoplift to get cash. It's not a one off he's a multiple offender.
