A shoplifter has been charged following a spate of thefts in Princes Risborough.

On Friday, January 19, the authorities received a call from one of the local shops based along the High Street to report the crime.

The suspect was soon captured.

However, after several enquiries with other local businesses, Thames Valley Police also identified two other shops that had allegedly been hit by the same individual.

The stolen items were discovered along Risborough’s High Street and were eventually returned to the shops.

In all, the person in question was charged with counts of shoplifting.
