Woman stole £500 worth of sex toys and condoms from Boots

A woman who nicked £500 worth of sex toys and condoms from a Boots store has been sentenced, with the goods she stole "not recovered".

Clara McLay, 31, had wandered into the store and made off with £500 worth of adult sex toys and around 50 boxes of condoms.

The 31-year-old has since admitted to the theft from the shop, but magistrates at Teesside Magistrates Court were told the items were worth around £100, TeessideLive reported.

The shoplifting, which took place on January 2, saw McLay head straight for the sexual wellbeing aisle of the pharmaceutical chain store and fill her boots with sex toy stock.

She picked up a collection of sex toys and condoms believed to be valued at £507.15, with the prosecution noting that the 31-year-old had made no attempt to pay for the items.

Heather Willis, prosecuting, said: "She then left the store making no attempt to pay. These goods were not recovered."

McLay was subsequently interviewed by officers and it was there that she admitted her intent to steal the items when she entered the store as she had no means of paying for them.

Daniel Burke, mitigating, said that it did not make "material difference" to the sentence McLay would receive regarding the price of the condoms.

Burke said: "She doesn't think it was £507 worth of items taken. I don't think it will make a material difference to sentence."

Instead, he looked up the most expensive box of condoms the chain sells, which came to £10.99, or roughly 50 boxes worth of supplies stolen by McLay.

The 31-year-old was sentenced to 26 weeks in prison for five other shop thefts, with Burke saying he did not know why McLay was not sentenced for the condom thefts along with the other slate of stolen goods.

McLay was presented with outstanding fines of £3,056.17, sentenced to 12 weeks in custody to run concurrent to the previous sentence and pay £250 in compensation.
