Storeman had drugs down his trousers.

A STOREMAN was caught stealing drugs down the front of his trousers at a North Wales pharmaceutical firm.

Magistrates at Wrexham were told inquiries started after a warehouse worker claimed he could sell growth- promoting hormone in fitness clubs at pounds 80 a time.

Craig Shaun Case,18,of Hamden Way,Acrefair, admitted stealing 10 vials of Genotropin valued at pounds 2,750 from Phoenix Health Care, Dolydd Road,Wrexham,on January 27.

He was put on probation for 12 months and ordered to do 100 hours community punishment.

His co-accusedSimon Roberts, 24,of Crossways,Caia Park,Wrexham,admitted receiving stolen Viagra,Levitra and Reductil together costing pounds 215.The court ordered him to do 240 hours unpaid community work and each had to pay pounds 55costs.

Rhian Edwards,prosecuting, said an investigation started after Case had asked what security there was in the export section.

Managers kept watch and saw him walk to that section, although he did not work there.

He briefly went out of sight and when he returned he was walking differently. At first he denied having stolen goods down the front of his trousers and then he pulled out 10 vials of the growth hormone Genotropin, valued at pounds 2,782. Later he broke down,admitted the theft,and claimed Roberts bullied him into it.

He repeated the allegation to police and said the bullying had gone on for six months.

Roberts admitted handling stolen drugs but denied bullying.
