Myles Filose, 42, has been jailed for four months for shoplifting, theft of a bicycle and two public order offences.
Filose, of no fixed abode, was sentenced at Southampton Magistrates’ Court on Monday (15 January).
It follows an incident in November and three earlier this month.
On Saturday 25 November 2023, Filose stole a bicycle, valued at £1,000, from Above Bar Street, Southampton.
The bike was subsequently recovered by officers on Friday 1 December, when they found Filose in possession of it.
After an appeal for the owner to come forward, the victim was thankfully reunited with her bike on Thursday 7 December.
Then, on the morning of Wednesday 10 January, Filose entered Trespass on Above Bar Street and left the store with a tent, valued at £59.99, for which he made no attempt to pay.
Filose was then spotted in another shop later that afternoon. He was challenged about the earlier theft and the tent was located and recovered from a bag he was carrying.
Filose then began to verbally abuse and threaten the man who had retrieved the item. Filose said, “Wait until you get outside. Enjoy your time in ICU mate. I don’t mind going to prison.”
Finally, on Sunday 14 January, he made homophobic remarks towards a police officer who was arresting him in connection with the previous incidents. This occurred at Poundland, Above Bar Street.
Filose pleaded guilty to all four offences.
