A 37-year-old man from Stoke-on-Trent has been sentenced for a series of thefts across Staffordshire.
Daniel Quinlan, of Hope Street, was sentenced to 17 weeks in prison and ordered to pay £250 in compensation at North Staffordshire Justice Centre on September 29. It is following a hearing where he was convicted of nine shop thefts and a criminal damage offence that all took place in the Staffordshire force area within recent months.
Quinlan was also convicted for breaching his Criminal Behaviour Order.
Quinlan’s offences in Staffordshire occurred between August and September of this year. In all, Quinlan has targeted businesses in Hanley, Festival Retail Park in Stoke-on-Trent, Newcastle-under-Lyme and Burslem.
The 37-year-old has received numerous intervention work from various supporting partners in an attempt to support him and his rehabilitation.
PC Jason Skellern, part of the Integrated Offender Management team at Staffordshire Police said: “We believe that this is an appropriate sentence handed to Quinlan. As a result of the hard work from a variety of departments at Staffordshire Police and partners, this has led to Quinlan being charged.
“We hope it acts as a deterrent for anyone wishing to commit similar crimes in our local areas.”
