Foot stole a Nihola cargo bike worth £2,200 from Luard Road in Cambridge on February 9 and attempted to sell it on for just £50 when he was arrested by police.

Between January 19 and February 28 he stole perfume, meat, coffee, computer game equipment and washing powder worth more than £1,400 from John Lewis, Co-Op, The Perfume Shop, Levi’s, Game and a BP garage.

PC Rob Tindall said: “Foot is an opportunist thief who has caused misery to many businesses and individuals with his prolific offending. Cambridge city is a safer place while he is in prison and we hope he uses this time to turn his life around.”
