A prolific shoplifter has appeared in the dock yet again after stealing yet more items from a shop in Swindon.

Tracy Anne-Louise Manser, 32 of Whitworth Road, appeared at Swindon Magistrates Court on August 2.

She was charged with four counts of theft from a shop after stealing items from Iceland in April and May 2022 and pleaded guilty to all of the offences.

In total, Manser stole a total of £225.85 worth of items which included alcohol and meat.

Magistrates ordered the defendant to undertake a 25-day rehabilitation activity requirement and she was given another community order.

Manser was also ordered to pay £114 as a victim surcharge.

Additionally, the defendant previously appeared at Swindon Magistrates Court in March for theft offences after she stole hair products and a knife block set from Wilko.

On that occasion, Manser was fined £50 and was banned from both Wilko’s stores in Swindon for a year.
