Man jailed after stealing bank cards from Salisbury leisure centre lockers

STEALING bank cards from a Salisbury leisure centre has landed a 31-year-old in prison.

Aiden Marks (formerly Greene) has been jailed for three years and three months after stealing the cards and using them in nearby shops.

Marks, of Khartoum Road, Weymouth, was sentenced at Bournemouth Crown Court on Monday June 3 after previously pleading guilty to 18 offences of theft, fraud and vehicle interference.

Between February 13 and March 26, Marks went into unlocked lockers at Five Rivers Leisure Centre in Salisbury and stole items including bank cards and car keys.

He then entered their cars in the car park and stole items before returning the keys. He then used the cards at local supermarkets.

Marks pleaded guilty to six charges of fraud by false representation, six counts of theft, possession of a Class A drug and possession of a Class B drug.

Local Crime Investigator Fiona Penny said: “I hope this sentence is a deterrent to others who think it is okay to go through other people’s things and take what they want.

“Marks repeatedly took advantage of people who had not locked their personal items away and used their money for his own gratification.

“Your mobile phone, coins for the car park, sunglasses, packs of medication or other items that can earn quick cash are irresistible to the opportunist thief.

“I would urge anyone leaving their personal belongings such as wallets, handbags, purses and credit cards unattended should try to lock them away.

“This investigation looking into 18 offences committed by Marks is a demonstration of the team work between Neighbourhood Policing Teams and the Volume Crime Team within Wiltshire Police.”
