A Frenchman overly fond of a popular French anise-flavored aperitif has been jailed for the 51st time for stealing a bottle of it, justice officials said Wednesday.

Philippe Delandtscheer, age about 60, is so well-known at the prison in the northern French city of Lille that a special cell has been set aside for him, they said.At one time or another, he has been found guilty by every judge in the city's criminal court and has served 12 years and nine months in prison.

Delandtscheer's latest theft of the liquor took place two days after he got out of jail for the previous theft.
