Man targeted Booth's ‘after owner’s brag’
Source: Blackpool Gazette

A man who said he targeted Booths supermarkets after seeing the owner of the chain interviewed on television claiming to be rich has escaped a prison sentence.

Ian Coates told police he stole from the stores after the owner bragged he was “so rich he could afford anything.”

Coates, 42, of Brade Street, Southport, pleaded guilty to three offences of theft.

He was sentenced to 12 months supervision and ordered to pay £413 compensation by District Judge David Scanlon sitting at Blackpool Magistrates’ Court.

Martine Connah, prosecuting, said Coates was seen on CCTV stealing £150 of food from Booths in Hesketh Bank on October 31, but got away without being apprehended by store staff.
