A lifelong thief was caught stealing a bag full knickers from Debenhams after his daughter, who worked at the store, spotted him and alerted security staff.
Drug addict Neirnal Singh, 49, targeted a branch of the department store as part of a shoplifting spree which lasted more than six months.
Bristol Crown Court heard his estranged daughter pointed him out and he was found with a backpack stuffed with stolen knickers.
Prosecutor, Mark Worsley, said in June last year Singh went to Tesco Metro in Staple Hill and stole £43 worth of meat and dishwasher tablets without paying.
The following month he went to Debenhams where he was shopped by his own daughter after she saw him and alerted security staff who found him with a backpack full of stolen underwear.
Singh returned to the same store in December last year and was detained after attempting to steal £595 worth of jeans.
Singh also admitted attempting to burgle a home where his blood was found after attempting to gain entry into the house.
Caighli Taylor, defending, said: ‘He clearly has a very long list.
‘It is typical of offending when he was trapped in a long-standing, deeply-rooted drug problem.’
Singh pleaded guilty to four thefts and attempted burglary and was jailed for 15 months at Bristol Crown Court.
Sir John Royce, sitting as a judge of the High Court, told him: ‘You have a terrible record.
‘You were given chance after chance by the courts but you shunned those chances.
‘Your barrister urges me to impose a suspended sentence.
‘I’m afraid I cannot do so, bearing in mind the catalogue of offending in breach of a suspended sentence.’
