A shoplifter caught on CCTV stealing burgers, biscuits and Red Bull from a convenience store on the Isle of Wight has been sentenced.

Tyler Wilkinson, of Atkinson Drive, Newport, appeared at the Isle of Wight Magistrates' Court on Friday, May 3.

He pleaded guilty to two offences of stealing food and drink to the value of £34.98, and being in possession of cannabis.

In relation to the cannabis charge, court heard how Wilkinson, 20, and another male were stopped and searched by police on August 28 last year.

A small silver foil wrapper was found on the floor by officers and Wilkinson admitted it was his, Lauren Stone, prosecuting said.

In the first week of November he was given a caution for the offence and told to attend a course but did not, landing him in court.

On another occasion, on, December 10, Wilkinson, and a group of teenagers entered Pan Stores, on Royal Exchange, Newport.

Having picked up burgers, biscuits and Red Bull, he was seen on CCTV walking out the shop.

At the time of offending, Wilkinson had no previous convictions but has since been handed a suspended four-month prison term, for theft and possession of a knife in a public place.

A probation report read to the court said Wilkinson was complying "really well" with his order and was regularly attending appointments with a support worker, who was present in court.

Michael McGoldrick, defending, said Wilkinson can be very friendly and is "the most open client I have ever had".

He said the 20-year-old has ADHD and smokes cannabis to help ease his symptoms.

Magistrates congratulated Wilkinson on his glowing probation report, concluding he is "on the right path".

For shoplifting, he was ordered to pay a fine of £120, a surcharge of £48, costs of £48 and compensation of £34.98.

He was given no separate penalty for possession of cannabis.
