Admitted stealing bottle of whiskey from Lidl



Have your say

A 24-year-old man was given a conditional discharge for 12 months last Wednesday at Craigavon Magistrates Court for theft.

John Joseph Mulholland, Enniskeen, Craigavon, admitted 
the theft of a bottle of whiskey, valued at £12.99, from Lidl on September 6 last year.

The court heard that the defendant was caught on CCTV.

When interviewed he said he could not remember anything about it but he had been drinking 
from a bottle of 
whiskey that day and it could have been the same bottle.

A barrister for the defendant said he had spent some time in custody 
and it had a sobering effect on him.

Mulholland had no 
intention of returning to the lifestyle he was indulging in and wanted to put 
everything behind him, added the lawyer.
