A MAN from Kidderminster stole electrical items worth £130 from PC World.

John Rowberry, of Humphries Drive, admitted stealing from the Kidderminster store on September 9 this year when he appeared before Kidderminster Magistrates' Court the following day.

The 39-year-old also pleaded guilty to stealing alcohol worth £42 from Waitrose in Droitwich on September 6.

Rowberry was sentenced to two weeks in prison and was ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £122.

Magistrates said the crimes were made more serious by the defendant's record of previous offending.
