A man who stole Smirnoff Vodka from Lidl in Ballymena has been banned from entering the store by a court.
Angelo Giovanni Eagleson (37), of the Simon Community at Henry Street in the town, is an alcoholic, his defence lawyer told Ballymena Magistrates Court on March 7.
The defendant is due to go to a rehabilitation centre in Newry.
The case was adjourned to April for a pre-sentence report.
The defendant was released on £500 bail with a condition that he is not to enter Ballymena Lidl “for any reason”.
