Designer clothes thief gets 20 months

A man who stole designer clothes worth more than 23,000 yuan (US$3,650) from three commercial plazas was sentenced to 20 months in prison yesterday in Jing'an District People's Court.

Gu Lin, 23, must also pay a fine of 20,000 yuan.

Prosecutors said Gu stole a Burberry jacket priced at 9,000 yuan from the Bailian Outlets Plaza in Qingpu District last October and swiped an Emporio Armani men's jacket worth 9,500 yuan from a mall on Nanjing Road W. last November.

On December 5 last year Gu targeted a shopping center in Xuhui District and stole clothes and accessories totaling 4,634 yuan from boutiques of Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein, Tony Jeans, Levi's and Le coq sportif.

Gu was caught by police when he was stealing food from a Huaihai Road store on the same day and confessed to his thefts, prosecutors said.

The court learned that Gu quit his job in a hair salon and lived by stealing. The convict said he stole designer clothes because he liked them.
