Edgaras Alejunas, of Burrell Road, Ipswich, pleaded guilty to five thefts from shops, and possessions of cannabis when he appeared before the town’s magistrates.

The 25-year-old also admitted being in breach of a suspended prison sentence and failing to comply with a supervision order.

He had previously been spared jail after stealing 10 packets of coffee from Sainsbury’s and committing other thefts.
