A five-year-old girl has been served a trespass notice banning her from two supermarkets for two years for stealing a $1.50 bag of lollies.

The girl and her eight-year-old friend were caught shoplifting the sweets at Timaru’s Woolworths supermarket on Saturday afternoon.

They were with an 18-year-old, but he left the supermarket before the children were caught by the store’s duty manager.

The children were asked to sign their names on a trespass order forbidding them to set foot in both Woolworths and Countdown for two years.

Police were called and took the children home.
