Cheese Burglar Pleads Guilty
South Tyneside's most notorious serial thief is back behind bars for committing a cheese sin: he pocket eleven blocks of cheese from the town's market. He pleaded guilty and has been sentenced to eight weeks in prison. We all love cheese, but please folks, do not forget to cash out at the farmers market.
Police in South Shields launched Operation Intrepid two years ago to crackdown on shoplifting in the town centre.
As part of the operation, officers regularly patrol the town’s shopping centres to try to deter shoplifters, as well as working with CCTV and store security staff across to catch anyone that does steal from stores.
