THIEF Michael Carey has been fined after stealing two turkey crowns in the run-up to Christmas.

The 28-year-old, of Foster Road, Portsmouth, admitted taking the birds from Marks and Spencer in Portsmouth.

Prosecutor Graham Heath said Carey threatened to ‘stab’ a member of staff ‘if he tackled him’.

Portsmouth magistrates fined him £23 with £50 compensation to pay, with £40 prosecution costs.

The court heard the former council worker is undergoing drug rehabilitation.

Neither of the birds were recovered.
