This is the moment when bungling serial charity thief, Lee White, 35, of Locksway Road, Milton was caught on CCTV stealing yet another charity tin, this time from the Milton Arms.
White, who has a string of previous convictions for similar offences, was already out on license after stealing a staff tips pot from Pie & Vinyl in Castle Road. He was handed a three-month sentence at Portsmouth Magistrates on Friday for these thefts alongside two more charity thefts.

Laughable this is one-month LESS than he was sentenced for in 2013 for identical crimes.
White, now serving 12-weeks for his latest string of offences, was convicted on Friday of:
? 20 December – Tips Pot stolen from Pie & Vinyl, Castle Road
? 28 January – Charity Tin stolen from Bangkok Restaurant, Albert Road
? 3 February – Charity Tin stolen from Thatched House, Milton
? 5 February – Charity Tin stolen from Milton Arms
It seems White hasn’t learnt from past experience after being convicted of a string of similar thefts in 2013.
White was caught on CCTV buyneurontinonlinehere.com when a tip jar and a box for The Rowans Hospice were the first to be stolen, from Le Cafe Parisien in Lord Montgomery Way, on 27th February, 2013.
The Osprey fish and chip shop in Highland Road had a box for the Gurkha Welfare Trust swiped on 9th March.
