A shoplifter has been jailed after stealing meat from Marks and Spencer just hours after being banned from every store in King’s Lynn. 

Mark Wilson, 36, was remanded in custody at Norwich Magistrates’ Court over “continual breaches” of his previous bail conditions.

Josephine Jones, prosecuting, said he had continued to commit new offences despite being due to be sentenced at King’s Lynn Magistrates’ Court next month for a string of previous shop thefts.

As part of his bail he was banned from entering King’s Lynn town centre and from every retail premise in the town except one grocery store and a pharmacist in Gaywood.

Wilson, of Parkway in Gaywood, pleaded guilty to stealing £141 of meat within hours of the conditions being imposed. 

The court was told he had also failed to attend any appointments with the probation service to compile a pre-sentence report.

Remanding him, District Judge Matthew Wallace said his offending was “relentless”.

Michael Cole, mitigating, said: “I’m an optimist but even I have given up hope that he will keep to his bail and not commit further offences.”
