A total of 22 charges have been authorised against a man and a woman who are alleged to have repeatedly stolen from the same shop in Westgate-on-Sea.

Jordan Best and Faye Butterfield were both arrested during the early hours of Saturday, December 11 after Kent Police officers recognised them as being outstanding suspects for numerous theft reports.

Subsequent enquiries have led to each of them being charged with 10 counts of theft committed against the Co-Op in Station Road  between November 16 and 10 December 10.

Alcohol and various grocery items, with a combined value that is in excess of £300, is said to have been taken.

Best, 35, of Station Road, Westgate-on-Sea, was additionally charged with an extra count of shoplifting, which took place at the same shop on December 9.

Butterfield, 38, of Station Road, Westgate-on-Sea, was also charged with assaulting an emergency services worker. The charge relates to an allegation she kicked a police constable in the leg while being detained.

Both suspects have been remanded in custody to appear at Folkestone Magistrates’ Court today (December 13).


  1. Another slap on the wrist coming up? Let free so they can do it all again. No point in finding them as they will only steal more to pay for it. The dregs of society.

  2. They live in Station Road and repeatedly robbed the local Co-op? Possibly not the sharpest knives on the block.

    • Shoplifting in coop westgate , was and may still be a daily occurence, usually the local druggies and dole wallers, who know the staff are instructed not to physically intervene and that the chances of being held to account are slim and that even if they are there’ll be no meaningful sanction. So perhaps they aren’t quite so dull.

  3. I thought so! Jordan Best, and Faye Butterfield you can tell from their names they must be East Europeans, or Asylum Seekers!
