Serial shoplifter sent to prison by Carlisle court

A prolific shoplifter who went on stealing despite being banned from stores in three Cumbrian towns has been jailed.

Louise Dixon, 31, of Greens Yard, Cockermouth, had been banned for two years from entering shops in Workington, Maryport and Cockermouth in an attempt to stop her causing “unnecessary distress” to retailers in those towns.

But in December, Dixon - who had 34 previous convictions, including 15 for shoplifting - was caught stealing from three shops.

And today a judge at Carlisle Crown Court finally ran out of patience and sent the mother-of-two to prison for 54 weeks.

Dixon pleaded guilty to three charges of theft and two of breaching the terms of the Antisocial Behaviour Order (ASBO) banning her from the shops.

She was also ordered to pay an £80 statutory surcharge.

Christmas gift and food shopping all finished?

Not started. I always join the Christmas eve rush.

Ages ago. I like to be organised.

Don't know. I leave it all to the wife.
