A ROMANIAN man became part of a gang of thieves in order to make enough cash to return home, a court heard.
Robert Golfita, 27, was part of a group who targeted stores across the region, including Tesco in Burton where he stole three PlayStation 4 games on December 27.
The group had travelled to Burton from Birmingham, where Golfita currently lives, in order to carry out the thefts.
Burton Magistrates’ Court heard how Golfita had arrived in Britain at the beginning of December after being promised work, only to be found out he had been conned.
Will Harrington, defending, said: “He had been tricked and since then has been trying to go back home.”
Golfita was jailed for seven days.
