Sarah Iddon, of Riverview in Falmouth, was given a 12 month conditional discharge after admitting stealing clothing and gift items worth £101 from BHS in Truro, when she appeared before magistrates last week.

The offence took place on December 13 and 29-year-old Iddon was also ordered to pay £15 victim surcharge and £85 costs. No compensation order was made because the goods had been recovered.
