Shoplifter caught in Leyburn after whisky theft

A shoplifter has been caught in Leyburn after stealing a bottle of whisky from the Co-op.

On Thursday last week the supermarket reported that a male had entered the store and stolen a bottle of whiskey.

CCTV footage of the theft was seized by local police.

On Monday, a Leyburn Police officer recognised the male from the CCTV footage responsible for the theft and apprehended him.

The male admitted shop theft and was issued with a community resolution disposal which resulted in him paying for the stolen whisky and being barred from the store.
