A 36-year-old man has pleaded guilty to a series of thefts including stealing meat and poultry from Iceland four days in a row.

Robert Elias, whose address was given as Portmore Street, Portadown, appeared in the dock last Wednesday at Craigavon Magistrates Court.

His solicitor indicated he would be pleading guilty to all charges.

Elias admitted stealing meat and poultry valued at £80 from Iceland on February 9 this year and further thefts of similar items worth £20, £5 and £45 from the same store on February 10, 11 and 12.

He is also accused of the theft of three bottles of perfume valued at £159 from Debenhams on May 24 and stealing meat worth £33.11 from Sainsbury’s on May 31.

The case was adjourned until December 14 so that a pre-sentence report could be obtained.
