A SHOP lifter who had money in his pocket stole because he thought he could “get away with it”, a court heard.
Lithuanian Eivydas Anisimavicius stole a pair of trainers worth £33 from TK Max in the Ipswich Buttermarket Centre and then stole a holdall to put them in.
He left the store without paying on January 12, South East Suffolk Magistrates' Court heard.
Lesla Small prosecuting said: “He had money to pay for them but thought he could get away with it.”
She said the 22-year-old, of Henniker Road, Ipswich, had two previous police cautions for handling stolen goods and one for theft.
Anisimavicius pleaded guilty to shoplifting. He told the court: “I cannot even account for my actions. I do not know what got into my head.”
