A man has been given a suspended sentence after stealing hundreds of pounds worth of perfume from a St Albans shop.
William Wilks, 32, admitted stealing from Boots in the city on November 15 and 16 last year.
He stole £194 worth of perfume on the first date and £195 worth on the second.
The defendant also admitted failing to turn up at court on December 18.
Wilks, of Grove Road in Luton, appeared at Hatfield Magistrates’ Court on January 17.
He was given a jail term of eight weeks, suspended for six months.
Magistrates felt the offences were especially serious given his persistent history of offending.
