Shoplifter Lee Fuller was arrested for stealing from shops in Medway - and then had to face the wrath of his mother.
Fuller, 22, of Skinner Street, Gillingham, took meat from the Co-op store in Central Parade, Rochester, and a £59.99 Xbox 360 wireless adapter from Maplins Electronics store in Luton Road, Chatham.
He was later identified by CCTV images from the store and questioned over the matter when he was arrested for the offence at Mapllns.
Alan Balneaves, defending, said: “He took the items when he had no benefit for a while.
“He is working and has stopped using drugs and is self medicating. His mum is livid with him.”
Magistrates gave Fuller a 12-month supervision order which will involve him completing drug rehabilitation for six months.
He was also placed under curfew for three months and ordered to pay £19.52 compensation and £85 costs.
