A serial shoplifter from Brighton has been jailed after a four-month spree during which he stole food, drink and medicines worth more than £750.

Daniel Ejeta, 45, of Buckingham Place, Brighton, was jailed for 20 weeks at Brighton Magistrates’ Court after pleading guilty to eight counts of shoplifting.
