Ella Sismey was told by a judge he would be “failing in his public duty” if he did not jail her for the offences which took place at Kingsway Retail Park on Saturday, March 2. Southern Derbyshire Magistrates’ Court was told how the 27-year-old was recognised on CCTV from a previous theft at the Boots store and was challenged by the manager as she tried to leave.
