Britain’s most prolific thief’s done it again
from jail on Monday with £8.16, a travel warrant, but no accommodation. “He’s now more a social nuisance than anything else,” Mr Thomas said.
He revealed Archer had lost five stone and been diagnosed with cancer while in prison.
Court chairman John Mortimer said: “The breach of the anti-social behaviour order being the second within a period of weeks, and the disgraceful thefts of charity boxes and your appalling record of such thefts, leads us to believe the offences are so serious only custody can be justified.”
He must pay the criminal courts charge of £180 and an £80 surcharge on his release from his latest sentence.
