20 Jul 2018
A Derry man who was described in court as a 'serial shoplifter' has been granted bail with one of the conditions being that he is not to enter any Boots store in the north. David Hugh Canning (36) of Cromore Gardens in Derry faced a series of charges relating to thefts from shops. Canning was charged with stealing perfume and other goods valued at more than £1,500 from Boots stores on dates in March and May this year. He is also charged with stealing bed items valued at more than £90 from The Range store. Canning was also charged with going equipped for a burglary on May 14 by having a pair of pliers. He also faced a charge of obstructing police on March 30. At today's sitting of Derry Magistrate's Court sitting in Omagh Canning was released on his own bail of £500 on condition he does not enter any Boots store in the North, nor is he to enter The Range store in Derry, Canning must also abstain from alcohol and submit to a breath test if required. District Judge Barney McElholm said this was 'a spree of shoplifting' and adjourned the case until August 15.
