Carlisle man with 171 crimes to his name back in court

A man with 171 crimes to his name has been back in court.

Robert Walter Farren, 55, who has a 40-year criminal record, appeared before magistrates in Carlisle where he admitted shoplifting and drugs offences.

The court heard how Farren, of Raven Nook, off Greystone Road, Carlisle, admitted taking beer and sweets from Booze Busters, in Furze Street, on January 14, and to possessing cannabis and amphetamine.

Prosecutor Adrienne Harris said Farren was seen in the shop with a woman. They returned later after which staff realised beer and sweets worth £18.50 had been taken.

Defence solicitor Lauren Heesley said Farren had “no recollection of the day”.

He was given a six-month community order and ordered to do 80 hours of unpaid work. He also has to pay compensation, £50 court costs and a £60 victim surcharge.

Is it time to reintroduce the dog licence?

Yes - It would certainly make people more responsible about looking after their pets

No - Some people will just abandon dogs whether they've paid for a licence or not

Maybe - but also all dogs should be microchipped and tagged so owners can be traced
