A man who stole a hairdryer has been jailed for two and a half months.
Gareth McKee (24), with an address listed as Dunclug Park in Ballymena, took the hairdryer from Sainsbury’s on May 31 this year.
He appeared at Ballymena Magistrates Court from prison via video link on Thursday for sentencing.
The court heard the hairdryer had not been recovered.
Defence solicitor David Nagra said the defendant had served the equivalent of ten weeks in custody on remand.
District Judge Nigel Broderick said the defendant had a “very poor record” for theft.
