A man caught on CCTV picking up a television from the shelf at a Lincoln Aldi store and asking for a £329.99 refund has pleaded guilty to fraud.
South Yorkshire Police have charged Simon Porter, 42, with fraud offences, which took place in a number of locations including Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and West Yorkshire.
Porter walked into the supermarket on Wragby Road on January 2 and picked up a boxed television from the shop floor.
He then walked straight to one of the tills and asked the cashier for a refund without a receipt.
Porter then left the till to speak with the manager, shook his hand and returned to the cashier who believed permission had been given for a refund.
He received £329.99 and left the store.
Porter was bailed to appear at Doncaster Magistrates’ Court on February 4 where he pleaded guilty.
He will appear in court on February 13 for sentencing.
