PROLIFIC OFFENDER ... David Kelly.

A SERIAL offender was told he has had “every opportunity” to reform by a court judge who locked him up for more than eight months for his latest crime spree.

David Kelly was put back behind bars after admitting three shop thefts, being in possession of drugs at a pub, failing to surrender to police custody and breaching a conditional discharge.

South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court heard that the 32-year-old has only been released from prison in December, but was caught with amphetamines by security staff at the Scotia pub, in Mile End Road, on New Year’s Eve.
