According to the Daily Post, three couples who stole thousands of pounds worth of property in a “sophisticated and professional” shoplifting expedition to North Wales have been jailed.

Three men and three women, all from Dublin in Ireland were arrested as they made their way back to Holyhead with over £10,000-worth of goods in their cars.

They all pleaded guilty to stealing £1,126 worth of clothes from River Island but the District Judge said they had clearly travelled across borders into Northern Ireland and into North Wales with the intention of shoplifting and carried equipment to remove security tags from items.

He told them, “You all played an important part in what was quite a sophisticated and professional shoplifting venture which resulted in high-value goods being stolen. You were clearly acting as a pack.”
