A heroin addict stole chicken joints because he was depressed and wanted money for drugs. According to ThisIsPlymouth.co.uk, 29-year-old Gary Lomax was feeling depressed because of a breakdown of his relationship, as well as the "atrocious weather." He admitted to stealing chicken joints worth 35 British pounds. He was spotted on camera by a security guard, stealing six chicken joints.
Lomax admitted his life "had been ruined and wrecked by heroin." He added, "despite the weather, he decided to get some heroin and lift himself." He was already under a court order to treat his heroin addiction, but admitted he was finding it difficult to concentrate on his work. Lomax's lawyer asked the court to give him one last chance. Magistrates deferred his sentence until June 29, to give the man a chance to comply with court orders. If he complies, he will only be ordered to pay compensation for the chicken joints. If he does not comply, he will go to prison.
