A homeless man who stole goods at a supermarket has been given a conditional discharge.

Lukasz Jozwiak, who gave a care of address of Moorland Avenue in Wrexham, appeared at Wrexham Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

The 39-year-old admitted that on December 9, he stole whiskey and deodorant from Aldi in Wrexham.

Prosecutor Justin Espie told the court that on the day of the offence, the defendant entered the store and selected a number of items before attempting to leave with them.

However he was confronted and returned the goods.

Ceri Lewis, defending, told the court: "Mr Jozwiak is homeless at the current time.

"He has been homeless for five years and has no income.


"This goes back to December and he hasn't been back to the store since.

"There have been no further offences."

District Judge Gwyn Jones told Jozwiak: "It's clear you provided a degree of cooperation to the store staff.

The Leader:

"I can deal with you by way of a discharge."

As such, the Judge handed down a two year conditional discharge.

Jozwiak must pay £85 costs.

"Don't offend in the course of the next two years," the Judge warned him.

"Please behave."
