SHOP thief Rafal Delezuck and a wheelchair accomplice stole four bottles of vodka from Spalding’s B&M Bargains.
Having got away with it, they went back and took eight bottles. But this time they were spotted and caught.
Delezuck (25), formerly of Love Lane, Spalding, appeared in custody at Spalding Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday because an arrest warrant was issued when he failed to attend a previous hearing.
He admitted thefts of the vodka and theft of a World War One medal – bearing the name Louth – which he found in the street and kept.
Rebecca Ritson, prosecuting, said Delezuck told police: “I thought it would bring me luck.”
Delezuck, now living in Leceister, was fined a total of £145 for the theft of eight bottles of vodka and £50 for failing to surrender to bail.
He was given no separate penalties for the other matters.
He must pay £85 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.
Solicitor Mike Alexander, mitigating, said Delezuck realised the thefts were stupid. He had always intended to hand himself in put kept putting it off once he found work in Leicester.
