A MAN went into a store and stole two bottles of aftershave.

Adrian Shane Golden went into Wilkos, in Middleton Grange Shopping Centre, in Hartlepool, and picked up two bottles of aftershave.

The 32-year-old removed the security tags and threw them away in the shop.

Prosecuting Guy Prest said: “He was caught on CCTV and once officers were able to see that they were able to recognise him.”

Golden, of Ventnor Avenue, in Hartlepool, pleaded guilty to theft on October 29.

Mitigating, John Relton said his client committed the offence to sell on the goods for money as he had none.

Chairman of the bench Patricia Hutchison sentenced him to a six-month conditional discharge.
