A persistent thief has been jailed for two months after being caught helping himself to 10 packets of pens from a stationery shop.

Laurence Graham Hammer, 40, of Pole Street, Preston, stole £49 of pens from Rymans Stationers on October 20.

Preston Magistrates’ Court said only a custodial sentence is justified because he is a persistent offender and was subject to a community order.
