Fined for stealing £113 of meat

Have your say

A MAN stole £113.28 worth meat from Asda after running out of money and not wanting to go back on benefits.

Ian Tilford, of Shelley Avenue, Grantham, admitted failing to scan the meat at a self-scan till on September 2 after he failed to earn enough money as a handyman.

Chris Pye-Smith, defending, said: “It was completely unsophisticated. He had literally run out of money.”

Tilford was fined £65 with a £15 victim surcharge.
