A MAN stole a bottle of whisky from Sainsbury’s in Bourne and got clean away, but staff detained him as he returned the next day, Spalding magistrates heard.

Prosecutor Daniel Paulson said Edvard Mencinskij has no previous convictions but is banned from Sainsbury’s, Tesco and other stores in Bourne.

Mencinskij (23), of Recreation Road, Bourne, was fined £170 and ordered to pay £85 costs and a £15 victim surcharge when he admitted theft. He must also pay £21.79 compensation.

Solicitor Mike Alexander, mitigating, said Mencinskij was drunk at the time and admits behaving in “a stupid way” when drunk.
