Dean Boddey was stopped by staff after he came out of the store with £97 of food, at Priestic Road, on September 1.

The 38-year-old, of Derwent Drive, admitted the theft at Mansfield Magistrates Court, on Friday.

He told the court he had stopped taking medication for a personality disorder, but had since started again.

“I don’t know why I did it,” he told magistrates. “I don’t even know if I did it.”

He was given a 12 month conditional discharge, and must pay £85 costs and a £20 government surcharge.
