A 19-years-old Creggan man has been jailed after appearing in court to face separate charges of using counterfeit money and shoplifting.

Aaron Fitzpatrick, of Iniscarn Crescent, was convicted of trying to pass two £20 notes in Strabane on May 1, 2015, and of stealing £90 worth of make-up from Boots and £61 worth of make-up from Superdrug in Derry on December 14 last.

District Judge McElholm sentenced Fitzpatrick to nine months imprisonment, lamenting at the fact he had “kept offending over and over and over.”
