A THIEF with a penchant for sausages has admitted stealing a hot dog, a sausage roll and more food items from Herefordshire shops.

Antony Stuchbery, 34, pinched the porky goodies from the Co-Op and Aldi shops in Leominster, as well as breaking into a block of flats and stealing a TV.

The offences were committed from December 18 last year to May 14 this year. His full list of stolen products included five sausages, a hot dog, a sausage roll, four Warburtons crumpets, three packs of butter, a pack of Pilgrim cheese and a can of Monster. The total value of his food haul was £35.37.

He also burgled an LG television from the landing of a block of flats in Leominster, the value of which was unknown.


Appearing at Kidderminster Magistrates’ Court on July 1, Stuchbery, of Bridge Street, Leominster, pleaded guilty to one count of burglary and two counts of theft from a shop.

The magistrates released him on conditional bail. He will be sentenced at Worcester Crown Court on July 29.

The conditions of his bail say he must live and sleep at his home address each night.
