A man who stole a sandwich from a Carlisle supermarket said he was hungry and had no money.
Jamie Keith Clark, 33, of Mardale Road on the city’s Raffles estate, admitted theft of the sandwich from Sainsbury’s in Caldewgate when he appeared before Carlisle magistrates.
The court heard he was spotted on the store’s CCTV camera. He was known to staff and later arrested.
Clark, who has 40 previous offences for theft and similar offences, told the court: “I had no-money and was waiting for my benefits. I was hungry.”
He was fined £35, with prosecution costs of £85 and a victim’s surcharge of £20.
