Mansfield magistrates were told how the family of a Kirkby drug addict helped return goods he had stolen to their rightful owners.

Jamie Richards (31) of Gladstone Street, Kirkby, admitted entering a farm outbuilding in a remote part of the area and stealing a lawnmower, an industrial strimmer and hedge-cutting equipment.

Neil Hollett, prosecuting, told the court how the farm owners were alerted to the theft by neighbours and viewed CCTV footage of a van being backed up to their property and loaded with the stolen goods.
