A Tottenham teenager has been jailed for 13 months after plain-clothes police spotted her stealing from mobile phone and beauty stores in Wood Green during the riots.
Jobless Shirine Akinnagbe, 19, of High Road, Tottenham, appeared at Wood Green Crown Court today where she pleaded guilty to two counts of burglary during the violent disorder on August 7 last year.
She was seen by undercover officers repeatedly taking items from the O2 shop and The Body Shop in High Road, Wood Green, and placing them in a big bag hidden in the street.
She was arrested at the scene, and was today sentenced to 13 months in a young offenders’ institute.
