The 18-year-old, of Baily Avenue, Thatcham, admitted stealing £76 worth of scent from Between The Lines in Newbury on Monday, May 13, which was not recovered.

Next day he was caught trying to steal £65 worth of clothing from Next in Newbury – and was also found to have the Class B-controlled drug on him.

Mr Hancock was made subject to an 18-month conditional discharge.

In addition, he was ordered to pay £85 costs, plus £76 compensation for the unrecovered scent, in lieu of an otherwise statutory victim services surcharge.
