A MAN from Westcliff has pleaded guilty to breaching his community order and stealing alcohol on three separate occasions.
William Jackson, 55, of Valkyrie Road, was given a12- month community order with supervision and alcohol treatment for nine months, but failed to attend the first two appointments.
The court heard Mr Jackson had been caught on CCTV stealing alcohol worth £8 from the Co-op on Monday, September 9, which was not recovered.
He was caught on CCTV again ten days later taking two bottles of wine, one worth £10 from BP, and another worth £5 from Tesco.
Southend magistrates added three months to the alcohol treatment order and ordered him to pay £8 compensation to the Co-op.
