A man has been jailed for several thefts, including 77 collars and leads from a pet store.

Lee Pemberton was jailed after stealing the leads and collars worth more than £1,400 from Pets at Home in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffs, reports The Stoke Sentinel.

The 38-year-old also stole strimmers, chainsaws and a pressure washer from B&Q; wallpaper, paint and water features from The Range; and SatNavs from Halfords.

Magistrates at North Staffordshire Justice Centre heard the stealing spree took place when Pemberton was without a prescription for methadone, which meant he returned to heroin and needed cash to buy the drug.

He pleaded guilty to five counts of theft, three counts of driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence, and three of driving without insurance.

The court heard he had 54 previous convictions for 192 offences.

Magistrates jailed Pemberton for 120 days for the thefts, and activated his 42-day suspended sentence to run consecutively. He was disqualified from driving for 12 months and ordered to pay back one third of the total value of the goods he stole.
