From The Mirror online.

Mum conned Asda's self-service tills by putting 7p 'reduced item' stickers on full-price goods

A court heard staff at the store in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent become suspicious when the machine said Claire Dunleavy, 34, had scanned through 22 items of cheap bread which weren't in her shopping bags

A court heard staff become suspicious when the machine said she had scanned through 22 items of cheap bread which weren't in her shopping bags.

Police were called to the superstore in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, and Dunleavy produced a yellow 7p 'Whoops' barcode from her bra.

Investigations then revealed the mum-of-three had carried out the same scam on two successive days before she was caught.

Dunleavy, of Bentilee, Stoke-on-Trent pleaded guilty to two charges of fraud by false representation and also admitted breaching a conditional discharge.

But she was spared jail when magistrates at North Staffordshire Justice Centre sentenced her to a 12-month community order on Monday.

She was also fined £80 and told to pay £200 costs, a £60 surcharge, and £53.36 compensation to Asda.

The court heard Dunleavy had been handed a 12-month conditional discharge for shoplifting less than two weeks before she struck at the Asda store.

JPs were told the manager knew her to speak to and became aware of a problem with the self-scan till.

Prosecutor Steve Knowles said: "Inquiries showed a reduced barcode had been used multiple times"

Hands up then, who here has done something dodgy at the self-scans? I admit to once putting through some dear apples as cheaper ones in Asda. ohmy.gif Wouldn't have the balls to do what she did though. rolleyes.gif

It was only a matter of time before this happened, although I don't know how she pulled it off several times with the same sticker as don't the self-scans register the weight against the barcode? How did she scan something like a tin of beans with the barcode from bread without the machine flagging up an issue? 22 items as well, clearly the staff in Asda weren't paying close attention laugh.gif

The dodgiest thing I've done is say I've used 0 plastic bags when I have used one kink.gif

Apparently the 7p reduced barxode overides the wieiht error message so she could scan anything for just 7p.
