THIEF Mickala Sprake has been told to get help for her drug problem.

The 24-year-old committed a string of shoplifting offences to get money for drugs.

She stole meat and toiletries from the Co-op in St Albans Road, Havant, on three occasions.

She also took meat from the Co-op in Forestside Avenue, Havant.

At the time of the offences she had a conditional discharge hanging over her after being convicted of being drunk and disorderly.

Sprake, of Woodhay Walk, Havant, pleaded guilty to four counts of theft and admitted breaching her conditional discharge when she appeared at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court.

The magistrates ordered her to have six months of drug rehabilitation.

She must also have nine months of supervision from the probation service to help her keep out of trouble.
