A TURIN Court thief has been jailed after stealing razors worth more than £400 and a wallet containing £300.

John Edward Ball was sentenced to eight weeks in prison after admitting to making off with Gillette razors worth £423.04 from Superdrug in Winchester earlier this month.

The 37-year-old also pleaded guilty to stealing a wallet containing £300 from a man in Winchester at the end of September when he appeared in Basingstoke Magistrates' Court recently.

Ball was further ordered to pay a £115 surcharge to fund victim services and £20 Crown Prosecution costs.
