News | Fruity phone theft suspect goes to court

A man detained by Union security suspected of stealing 14 mobile phones has appeared in court this week charged with 12 counts of theft.

The 22 year old male was arrested on Friday September 27 during Fruity, when Union security staff noticed he was “acting strangely.”

LS reported on the original incident and spoke to Bars and Venues Manager Stephen Keeble, who said: “We are pleased that the fast action of our staff has led to an individual being charged by the police and has enabled a number of students to be reunited with their property.”

Security staff used the Business Against Crime in Leeds (BACIL) website which enabled them to identify the man.
