A recovering drug addict who has been banned from every chemist in Sutton was caught trying to steal a bottle of perfume from TK Maxx in Mansfield.

Hayden Rivers, 36, of Nesbitt Street, Sutton, was captured on CCTV putting the Burberry item in a carrier bag, taking his jacket off and placing it in the bag on top of the bottle.

Mansfield Magistrates’ Court was told how Rivers was on a methadone programme, and suffered from deep vein thrombosis.

He is forced to attend a chemist in Mansfield for his prescription because of his blanket ban in the Sutton area.

Probation said he had also missed vital appointments since he had been released from prison for a previous offence.

He was jailed again for a further 74 days.
