A drunken Sutton man stood and ate almost £5 of chocolate infront of shocked shop assistants after he was challenged for trying to steal confectionary.
Simon Foulkes (31) of Willow Crescent, Sutton, was discovered by police leaning on a counter, tucking into a Mars Bar, after workers at Skegby Post Office called the police on 8th May.
