|Shoplifter with nearly 100 convictions banned from Leeds city centre|
A shoplifter with nearly 100 convictions to her name has been banned from Leeds city centre for three years.
Chantelle Mitchell, of Broadway, Horsforth, has a record of 91 thefts from shops in the city going back to 1995.
Her latest conviction was for stealing two jackets, worth £200, from Blacks in The Core shopping centre on October 13, when she was chased and caught after using a foil-lined bag to conceal the garments.
Mitchell, 38, was jailed for 31 weeks by Leeds magistrates this week for the theft and for committing the offences while on a suspended sentence.
But she was also given a three-year criminal behaviour order banning her from entering the city centre.
Deputy District Judge Andrew Jebb told Mitchell: “Businesses in the area are entitled to a rest from your activities”.
