An intoxicated man who stole items from a hospital on his way home from a night out was before Castlebar District Court this week.
Garda Michael Kelly was called to the Sacred Heart Hospital, Castlebar, on June 1 2010 after it was reported that a radio and grilling machine had been stolen from the kitchen of the hospital. CCTV identified Sean Jordan, 10 Greenfields, Castlebar, as the culprit.
The defendant made a statement and brought the stolen property with him to the Garda station.
The court heard that the 24-year-old GMIT student has been attending an addiction counsellor for his drinking since last year.
Judge Mary Devins adjourned the case for sentencing to December 7 2011.
