A man has been fined after he stole an etrog from a specialist Succot store in Golders Green, north west London, The Jewish Chronicle reported on Thursday.

According to the Chronicle, 23-year-old Ali Kerman-Shali told officers he had taken the fruit because he thought it "smelled nice" and he intended to eat it. Police sources reportedly said officers were "stunned" to discover the etrog's value after arresting Kerman-Shali, having initially believed he had taken a lemon, worth around 30p.

Kerman-Shali admitted one charge of theft at Hendon Magistrates' Court on Saturday and was fined £65, according to the report.
