A MAN has been found guilty of stealing from a shop he had previously been banned from in a hearing at Boston Magistrates’ Court last Wednesday.

Pranas Kyrzevicius, 59, of Tawney Street, Boston, pleaded guilty to the charge of theft from Asda to the value of £29.94.

Prosecutor Edward Johnson said that on the evening of Friday, July 27, a security guard at the store saw Kyrzevicius, who had been issued a banning order the previous week, carrying an Asda bag for life.

Although the bag contained a number of items, the court was told that Kyrzevicius walked straight past the self-service tills.

The security guard stopped Kyrzevicius outside and the police were called and arrested him.

During his interview he accepted guilt and indicated he would have eaten or drunk items he had stolen.

Mr Johnson added that during the interview the police officer said Kyrzevicius did show remorse for his actions.

Asda has issued a further banning order to him, but has made no claims for compensation.

He was remanded on conditional bail until September 10 for sentencing.
