Three fraudsters self-scanned animal electronics at Asda such as pears and potatoes.

Dandre Day, his girlfriend Courtney Tilley and accomplice Darren Tilley targeted goods for hundreds of pounds in the supermarket in, Sutton Coldfield, in a cheating 24-hour trip.

The trio fled the scene when the automated cash register sounded the alarm, prompting them to abandon products worth £ 369, reports BirminghamMail.

All three admitted fraud at Birmingham Magistrates Court on 6 October.

They were sentenced to pay £ 159.33 compensation to the shop on top of fines and other costs.

The trio hit the shot on March 21 before being caught the next day.

On the first occasion, they scanned a £ 149 screen like a sixpence bulb.

Later that day, the two DVD players put through like potatoes worth 12 pence.

The cheeky scammers also scanned through a set-top box like a light bulb, a keyboard like an onion, while a soundbar and a set of headphones worth a total of £ 120 were passed on as 20p glues.

The next day, they tried to get a television, soundbar and a set-up box, but left the items behind when security personnel were alerted and fled the store in a silver-colored Vauxhall.

Police subsequently issued an appeal for information showing the masked offenders captured on self-scanning cameras.

Fergal Bloomer, who defended Courtney Tilley, 19, stated she had no previous convictions and had pleaded guilty at the first opportunity.

He added: “She has lost her good character, which will remain with her for many years. She apologizes for what happened and realizes that she became involved in something that started quite simply.”

The lawyer offered similar reduction for his partner Day, 20, and said, “Their lives are now based on caring for their son. They are receiving both benefits.”

Alan Bryce, representing 20-year-old Darren Tilley, told the court that his client had recently found a job that “could very well provide a way out of this kind of violation.”

He said: “It was foolish offenses that almost had to be caught.”

Darren Tilley, of Dalewood Road, Sheldon, was sentenced to pay a fine of £ 200, £ 185 costs and a surcharge of £ 34.

Courtney Tilley and Day, both of Kingstanding Road, Kingstanding, were fined £ 80 each for their income and the same costs and surcharges.
