Sykes, 34,went to the alcohol aisle where he picked up two bottles of Jack Daniels and placed them in his bag.

The theft was captured on the store's CCTV equipment and Sykes was detained by security staff.

Sykes admitted the offence and told police that he had planned to sell the alcohol at local pubs.

He tested positive for having class A drugs in his system at Huddersfield Police Station.

Sykes was given a community order with six months of drug rehabilitation and a curfew order between 9pm and 7am. He must pay a PS60 victim surcharge.
