A man who went on a supermarket stealing spree has been handed 120 hours of community service.

Toma Marius Silica, of Broad Park Road, Coventry, stole more than £460 worth of TVs and booze from two supermarkets in the same day.

The 22-year-old went to the Co-op in Ammanford last Wednesday (July 28) and stole two televisions worth £289.98.

He then went to the Co-op in Llanelli and stole bottles of spirits worth £176.

Silica appeared at Llanelli magistrates’ court on Monday (July 31) charged with another theft offence from February this year, where he stole bottles of spirits worth £288 from and an Asda store in Cambridgeshire.

Silva admitted to committing all of the offences, and his guilty plea was taken in to account when magistrates sentenced him.

Magistrates handed Silica a sentence of 120 hours of unpaid community service to be carried out over the next 12 months.

He was also ordered to pay for the cost of the televisions and for the cost of the interpreter to attend the court.

Silva will pay £50 per week starting from the week commencing August 14.
