‘A great result for the community’

A 21-year-old from Grimsby has been sentenced to 20 weeks behind bars after a series of thefts from shops.

Grimsby Magistrates’ Court heard how Corey Boak, of Grimsby Road, carried out 10 shop thefts from businesses within Victoria Street, Ellis Way, Garibaldi Street, Market Street and Freeman Street.

He was jailed on Friday and also handed a Criminal Behaviour Order for three years.
