DRUG user Jason Robinson, who discarded packaging from a computer memory card on a supermarket floor and then walked out without paying, was given a three-month suspended jail sentence by Fenland magistrates.

During the next year, Robinson, 35, must undertake a drug rehabilitation programme and be supervised by the probation service.

Fenland magistrates also ordered Robinson, of Railway Road, Wisbech, to pay £14.97 compensation and £49 costs.

Robinson admitted stealing a memory stick from Wisbech's Asda store on July 27. He was also re-sentenced for a commercial burglary, because he had breached the community order imposed last January.

Mitigating, John Clarke said Robinson accepted he had a drug problem, which he was addressing, by referring himself for medical intervention.
