A 40-year-old woman has pleaded guilty to stealing boots from Asda by changing into them at the store.

On December 17 Nyree Bonar of Norton Street, Grantham, went into the town branch of Asda and changed out of her own shoes into a pair of black ankle boots valued at £22.

Bonar then paid for some other items, but was stopped by security on the way out who initially let her leave when a receipt for the purchased goods was presented.

However on checking the CCTV they identified Bonar as having stolen the shoes and consequently police attended her property and she was arrested.

Bonar admitted the theft in interview and said she was high on diazepam at the time.

The goods were recovered, but compensation expected due to the shoes having been worn and no longer in a saleable condition.

Sonia Bhalla, defending, said that Bonar didn’t know what she was doing after taking a higher dose of the drug which she is prescribed for her bi-polar.

Miss Bhalla added that her client was very sorry and described the incident as a ‘blip’.

Bonar was fined £75 and must also pay £85 in prosecution costs, a victim surcharge of £20 and the £22 compensation.
