Nathan Sigley, aged 19, from Kynaston Road, in Shrewsbury, was arrested by police on Thursday and appeared in the dock at Kidderminster Magistrates Court on Friday.

He pleaded guilty to two charges of stealing deodorants from shops in Pontesbury, near Shrewsbury.

Between July 18 and July 20 he took deodorants valued at £115.50, belonging to the One Stop, and on July 20 stole a number of deodorant products to the value of £48.00, belonging to Co-operative Retail Services Ltd.

A third charge of shoplifting deodorants from Boots, in Pride Hill, Shrewsbury, on Friday was withdrawn, the court heard.

The magistrates asked why Sigley was held in custody for shoplifting charges and the court was told that the police were "concerned about his offending behaviour" and were "worried that it would escalate".
