As reported in the Gloucester Citizen, a bodybuilding ‘addict’ has been banned from every Gloucester shop after terrorising traders for two years.

James Smith has 40 convictions for stealing items including protein powder and meat to feed his compulsion to work out every day.

Gloucester City Safe manager Richard Burge welcomed the ban, describing Smith as one of the most prolific shoplifters in the city. He said: “He has been a complete nuisance to businesses and the city.

“Smith has been a complete nightmare for retailers. He has been excluded for more than a year but has taken no notice of that and carried on going into premises and stealing.”
