Suspended sentence for turkey thief

James Richard Taggart, aged 31, of Duxbury Street, Bolton, pleaded guilty to stealing five frozen turkeys from Heron Frozen Foods and was given a suspended prison sentence of 4 weeks.  The court said Taggart had an extensive record for dishonesty and had travelled to Glossop to commit the offence when he was subject to post sentence supervision. He was also ordered to pay victim surcharge of £80 and costs of £85. No compensation was ordered because the turkeys were recovered.
