Man took phone from Carlisle shop counter

A thief took a mobile phone he found on a shop counter because it was better than his own.

Adrian Whitelock, 32, of Ferguson Road, Longsowerby, Carlisle, took the phone from the counter of the Co-op in Denton Holme after a woman left it behind.

Carlisle Magistrates’ Court heard how the woman realised she had left it but on her return found it had gone.

Whitelock, who admitted theft by finding, was seen on CCTV footage passing the counter and leaving the shop.

John Smith, defending, said Whitelock realised he had two phones in his pocket and changed his sim card to use the Blackberry Torch.

The phone was recovered undamaged.

Whitelock was fined £110 with prosecution costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £20.
