A teenage shoplifter has been given a 12-month conditional discharge for stealing foot scrub and socks from TK Maxx in Ipswich.

Sharna Cumberbatch, of Daffodil Close, Ipswich, pleaded guilty to theft from a shop when she appeared before the town’s magistrates.

The 18-year-old stole the items from the Buttermarket Centre store on April 30.

Prosecutor Colette Harper said Cumberbatch was seen on the store’s CCTV picking up foot scrub and two packets of Calvin Klein socks.

She put them in the carrier bag before taking two items into a fitting room.

When Cumberbatch came out she passed the items to a member of staff before leaving with the foot scrub and socks in the carrier bag.

Cumberbatch told the court: “I don’t really have a reason. I didn’t have any money.”

As well as her conditional discharge. Cumberbatch was ordered to pay £85 costs as well as £20 to the victims’ fund.
