Yesterday, Lee Bishop, of Balgowan Street, Plumstead, appeared at Court on warrant and was sentenced to six weeks in prison for his part in the theft. He stole coffee to the value of £38. Police said he was given the custodial sentence due to him not attending court and having previous convictions.

He was also on licence from his previous jail term. Bishop was ordered to pay £38 in compensation to the Co-Op and to pay £115 to fund victim services.
