Stealing supermarket groceries led to a Pembroke Dock man being sentenced to a week in custody.

Jamie Simon Hedley, of Pembroke Street, pleaded guilty to theft from a shop, when he appeared before Haverfordwest magistrates via video link from Swansea prison on Tuesday, October 2.

He admitted stealing groceries worth £13.60 from a Haverfordwest supermarket on May 25.

Vaughan Pritchard-Jones, prosecuting, said: “This man walked into the store, selected items, which included an Indian meal, and walked out. He was seen and stopped and the items were recovered.”

Jonathan Webb, defending, told the court that Hedley was struggling with his benefits and a drug addiction at the time of the offence.

The court heard that Hedley, 33, was currently serving a 30 week prison sentence.

Magistrates sentenced Hedley to a week in custody, to run concurrently with the sentence his is currently serving.

He was also ordered to pay a £115 surcharge.
