After a series of shop thefts in the Sleaford area over the Christmas period, police have announced a man has been detained and charged for four separate thefts from the town’s Tesco store.

Sergeant Stuart Mumby-Croft of Sleaford Police stated on social media yesterday (Wednesday): “Once again over the Christmas period we had individuals from outside of the Sleaford area who believed Sleaford would be a soft target for shop theft.

“The positive news is an adult male from the Boston area was detained by officers in Tesco last week.
