A 41 year old, gym locker thief, who is believed to be of a Ghanaian origin is said to have robbed £10,000 worth of valuables from a fitness centre and has been sentenced to 29 months imprisonment.

Crook Jonathan Mensah, 41, stole from lockers after discovering a loophole in the membership systems of The Gym and Pure Gym chains, reports The Manchester Evening News.

According to Mirror.com.uk, he owned up to 24 dishonesty offences, including 19 thefts, four frauds and attempted fraud in connection with the crime spree - and it was revealed he had been convicted on five previous occasions for identical offences.

But despite jailing him for 29 months for the "pernicious, nasty" crimes, the judge ruled a suggested anti-social behaviour order banning him from every gym, swimming pool; leisure centre and spa would not be "proportionate".

Instead, Mensah, has only been banned only from gyms that use a PIN code system by an Asbo after a Manchester Crown Court sentencing heard he used a clever ruse to get access to members-only areas.

The court heard Pure Gym and The Gym both have a membership scheme where users can apply online.

The member gets a pin number to access the gym and changing rooms round-the-clock for about a week before the account details are checked out.

Mensah, who lived in Manchester but has since moved to London, repeatedly entered false application details, got pin numbers to enter the premises, and then forced his way into lockers.

He often returned multiple times in one day in June and July last year.

Users of branches of The Gym at New York Street in Manchester city centre, as well as Pure Gym at Altrincham, Spinningfields, Ancoats and Debdale were all targeted.
