A prolific shoplifter with drug problems and 36 convictions has been given a chance by magistrates to sort himself out after he has been co-operating with the probation service.

Chesterfield magistrates’ court heard on Friday, June 6, how Shaun Wragsdale, 34, of Poplar Drive, New Tupton, Chesterfield, was caught by police after stealing a steam iron from b&m bargains, at Ravenside Retail Park, and two pairs of shorts from Next.

Prosecuting solicitor Robert Carr said: “Staff saw Wragsdale and were suspicious because they know him as a shoplifter. CCTV spotted Wragsdale enter b&m and he was tracked as he walked out.
