TWO men were given conditional discharges after stealing a television left outside a town centre shop.

Leon Robinson, 35, of New Street in Royston, and Christopher Green, 37, of Day Street, Barnsley, were seen on CCTV carrying the flat screen television down Market Street in the town centre at around 1.30am on April 13.

They had found the television outside Bright House, on Market Street.

The front of the shop showed signs of damage and ‘in the spur of the moment’ the pair had carried the television away – but they were quickly apprehended by police and charged with theft by finding.

Both men were handed 12-month conditional discharges and ordered to pay £20 victim surcharges at Barnsley Magistrates’ Court last Thursday.
