On the same date, he also stole three bottles of whiskey and two cans of Red Bull worth £34.

Ordered to pay £68 in compensation, plus £115 to victim services and £85 court costs.
Budka, of no fixed abode, was given a six-week jail term suspended for 12 months.
Magistrates considered the offences especially serious due to his “persistent” shoplifting and failure to comply with community orders.
The defendant must comply with a supervision period of 12 months.
He has been banned from entering Asda in Town Centre, Hatfield, for 12 months until July 27 2019.
