Youngster back behind bars after pinching TV

Despite knowing how bad prison conditions are from a previous stay, a 20-year-old man allegedly stole a television on Friday and has swiftly found himself back in the hothouse.

According to police, the man snuck into a woman’s house and stole the TV, before selling it and quickly spending the proceeds. He was arrested on Saturday and confessed.

After spending one year in prison previously for theft, the man had been shunned by his parents and said he had no choice but to return to a life of crime. Nokorwat
