TWO shoplifters were foiled after being confronted by a security guard while they were trying to leave a store, Grimsby magistrates heard.
Kim Welsh, 32, of Bentley Street, Cleethorpes, and Emma Zombra, 33, of Davenport Drive, Cleethorpes, admitted stealing food items, valued at £33.68, from B & M Home Store, Grimsby, on February 15.
Brendan Woodward, prosecuting, said the women tried to hide stolen items in bags, with Zombra seeming to act as the lookout.
They were confronted by a guard.

Nick Furman, mitigating, said the pair were single mothers and were struggling with money.
They stole items, including sweets, tuna and mouthwash, because one of their children was about to have a birthday.
They were each given a six-month conditional discharge and were also ordered to pay £85 costs and a Government-imposed £15 victims’ surcharge.
