Two people have been jailed for eight weeks after stealing more than £3,000 worth of perfume, aftershave and cosmetic items from Stansted Airport.

The thefts took place inside World Duty Free at the airport on Tuesday, March 26.

Essex Police were alerted after a member of staff saw a man and a woman acting suspiciously.

The woman - 37-year-old Donrina-Irina Filip Catana, of no fixed address, was found with the stolen items in some airside toilets.


The man - 43-year-old Marian Filip, of Stanway Gardens, Edgeware - was found a short time later about to board a flight.

They were both charged with theft and appeared at Chelmsford Magistrates' Court on Wednesday, March 27, where they admitted the offences.

They have both been sentenced to eight weeks in prison.
