A second warrant has been issued for the arrest for a man accused of stealing over £330 worth of razor blades and £1,400 worth of glasses when he failed to appear at Thames Magistrates’ Court on Friday.

Gleb Nikitin, 23, of Capworth Street in Leyton, allegedly stole the goods from Superdrug and Morrisons in Stratford on October 22 last year.

He previously failed to appear at the same court on April 4, when a warrant for arrest with bail was issued.

No new court date has been set.

He denies the charges.
