He was also convicted of shoplifting from theWorcester Road store on Monday and disorderly behaviour during the same incident.

Kidderminster Magistrates Court heard how the store manager confronted Howlett about the theft and was threatened with violence when he gave chase in a bid to get the stock back. The majority of the alcohol was recovered but Howlett escaped with one bottle.
