A WOMAN who stole a yoghurt from a shop in C[umbria] has been ordered to complete a 12-month supervision order.
Natalie Dockwray, 26, of Rutland Avenue, Whitehaven, admitted stealing the chocolate yoghurt from the store on Lakeland Avenue and a further offence of breaching her [Anti-Social Behaviour Order] ASBO by going into the shop.
Whitehaven magistrates ordered her to take part in a thinking skills course, pay 80p compensation and £85 court costs.
Pamela Fee, prosecuting, said: “The defendant entered the shop and was seen walking up to a shelf and putting a chocolate yoghurt in her jacket.”
The court heard that Dockwray left the area and walked to a house nearby. A PCSO had followed Dockwray who then put the stolen item in the bin.
Ian Nancollis, for Dockwray, said: “The Asbo prevents her from going in all but one shop in Whitehaven.”
Mr Nancollis said: “On that day, she had taken Benzodiazepine. She was a heroin addict for 10 years and is now on prescribed medication. She is keen to become drug free.”
