A Bexley man has been fined after stealing 40 bars of Cadburys Dairy Milk from a Co-op store while drunk.

David Sutton, 31, of Albany Close, admitted to stealing £70 worth of the sweet stuff from a promotional aisle of the shop in Blendon Road, Bexley, on March 17.

He appeared at Bexley Magistrates’ Court on Thursday (March 27) charged with theft from a shop.

Sarah O’Leary, mitigating, said: “This is around 40 bars of Cadbury Dairy Milk – a fair feat to carry.

“No one at the store noticed anything at the time.

“He has pleaded guilty at the earliest opportunity.

"His building work has suffered as a result of the economic climate.

“He had been drinking and that is what led to the offence.

“My client is very sorry and very embarrassed to be in front of the courts today.”

Chairman of Magistrates John Simpson said: “Your sweet tooth is going to cost you some money.

“You are going to pay £190 altogether, at the rate of £10 per fortnight.”

Bless him.

He's very well known to most shopkeepers in the Sidcup/Blackfen area.

Years ago when I worked in an off-license in Sidcup he used to come in buy one can of Super Tenants, and whilst rummaging around in the fridge place another can in his pocket. He did this everyday until I pointed out to him it would just be cheaper if he bought a whole case.....

That was about 10 years ago. He must have over 100 convictions for shoplifting now!

Surely a tattoo saying that would be more effective? Or would that be a little bit too harsh? :)

Would you say the same thing about a thief being a 'poor guy' if it were your house that someone robbed?

Your the idiot... It's you're.

You haven't really proved that you're not an idiot.
