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.

Would you have welcomed a new Sunday rail service from Carlisle to west Cumbria?

I'd use local rail services more often but they're unreliable and expensive

I would have used the Sunday service

Our rail services are way behind most other countries. No wonder we rely so heavily on cars
