A THIEF stole hundreds of pounds worth of alcohol from a supermarket while out of prison on licence.

Ben Wood, 27, who is currently serving a sentence at HMP Hewell, was in the Droitwich Morrisons where he stole alcohol valued between £500 and £600 on January 12 this year.

Security guards in the store noticed Wood and his accomplice attempting to leave with boxes of whiskey and miniatures. When security locked the doors, he put the boxes down and tried to leave through another exit.

Wood was sentenced to two weeks in prison to run concurrently with his existing sentence.

He was also ordered to pay £115 in costs and fines for the theft.
