Ryan Etherton, 42, of Willingdon Way, St Leonards, indicated a plea of guilty to stealing various items belonging to police officers and Sussex Police.

The offence took place at Hastings on March 1.

He was sentenced to eight weeks in prison. Magistrates said the reason for the custodial sentence was that he was in breach of a criminal behaviour order, his previous record and that the offence was committed so soon following release from a period of imprisonment.
