He then broke into to a local shop where he nabbed a single packet of biscuits.

Greenwood pleaded guilty to two counts of burglary at the Channel Magistrates’ Court last week and was handed a 9pm to 6am curfew.

He was given a 12 week prison sentence suspended for 12 months and was ordered to carry out 150 hours of unpaid work.
