19-year-old stole chicken sandwiches from Greggs
A TEENAGER narrowly avoided going to jail after pinching two chicken sandwiches worth less than £5.
Jordan Gullick swiped the items from Greggs in The Horsefair on December 28 because his friend was hungry. But the 19-year-old was already on a 12-month suspended prison sentence for an affray he committed last year. At Bristol Magistrates' Court Gullick, of Wade Street, city centre, admitted the theft.
Maxine Twynam, defending, said: "He realises what the consequences are but at that moment perhaps did not engage his brain."
Magistrates told him: "A suspended sentence is a last chance and virtually always they are activated but we feel for shop lifting it is not just that we send you to prison.
