A prolific shoplifter has been banned from entering four shops in Alfreton and Somercotes as part of an ASBO.

Chesterfield magistrates’ court heard on Monday, March 17, how James Mason, 36, of Main Road, Jacksdale, is currently serving a 28 day custodial sentence for theft and breaches of a conditional discharge and a suspended sentence and the CPS has now successfully applied for a two year anti-social behaviour order with bans.

Prosecuting solicitor Bill Taylor said: “Mason has an extensive record for dishonesty and is a prolific thief at shops and has been convicted for a number of shop thefts. Part of the reason is that he is a drug-user.”
