    Two prolific shoplifters have been jailed after they were busted on CCTV boldly walking out of an Asda in Doncaster with a whopping amount of Lego.

    Shakita Maximilian and Yasmin Leech have been sent to the slammer for 26 weeks in total after they were caught, along with fellow well-known shoplifters Emma Fraser and Shaun Fitzgerald, with a stolen stash of goods worth more than £1,400 nicked from shops across the Yorkshire city, YorkshireLive reports.

    Leech, 34, from Balby, and Maximilian, 25, of Sheffield, were jailed for 10 weeks and 16 weeks respectively after snatching around £300 worth of Lego from an Asda store.

    The pair were caught on CCTV entering the store, heading straight to the toy section and grabbing several boxes of Lego. They then walked to the self-service tills, shovelled all the Lego boxes into carrier bags and walked out past a security guard without paying for any of the items.

    Leech was convicted of one theft and sentenced on November 16, while Maximilian was convicted of four thefts in total after also taking £60 worth of boxsets from HMV, £151 worth of chocolate and chilled goods from One Stop and two t-shirts from JD Sports.

    Fraser and Fitzgerald were also sentenced for 16 weeks for stealing £500 worth of goods from Co-Op, One Stop, and a pharmacy, and eight weeks for pinching £70 worth of meat and chocolate from Tesco respectively.

    Sergeant Steve Roberts, from Doncaster Central Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: "We will not tolerate thieves stealing from stores in Doncaster and I'm pleased to see that these four prolific offenders have been given custodial sentences. We want Doncaster to be a safe and welcoming place for people to live, work, shop and visit, and we are determined to tackle retail crime to make sure that happens.

    "Shop workers and managers should not have to apprehend thieves at work and we want shoplifters to know that we are building intelligence on them and we know how they operate. We are watching you, and if you are caught, there is a very real prospect of you being sent to prison."
