Thorpe man stole two pies and bottle of Coca Cola
A Thorpe St Andrew man was left with a bill for more than �200 after he was convicted of stealing two pies and a bottle of Coca Cola - worth �3.59 - from Mark's and Spencer in Norwich.
Robert White, 22, from The Denes, was stopped by security guards after he left the shop in Rampant Horse Street in the city centre on February 4.
After pleading guilty before city magistrates today he was fined �100 plus a �15 victims surcharge and was ordered to pay �85 costs and compensation of �3.59.
White, who represented himself in court, admitted that he knew it was wrong but that he had been with a friend at the time.
He also accepted he was in breach of a conditional discharge for three years given last year for false representation and theft.
