A man who stole from charity shops in the Richmond and Barnes areas has avoided jail.

50-year-old Ricky Elsworthy was charged with four offences, with two counts of burglary where he stole in excess of £10,000.

Police say he continued to commit offences even while on court bail.

He’s been fined just under £500, and has been given an 11-month prison sentence, suspended for two years.
