Mitcham man fined £100 for shoplifting steak in Tesco
A 50-year-old man was fined for stealing £25 worth of steak at a Tesco self-scan checkout.
He paid for the cheap items on the self-scan at the Beverley Way store in Mitcham but placed the expensive items in the bag without paying.
The shoplifter was fined £100 by police at about 1pm yesterday.
Police said they issued the fine instead of arresting him to save time and money in prosecution costs.
