Llandudno...Man stole doormat and carried drugs and knife!

Why the doormat? Can you believe this is just £435 for carrying a knife and drugs! Just what the hell is happening?

A MAN was fined after admitting to stealing a doormat and being in possession of drugs and a weapon in Rhos-on-Sea.

David Thorpe, 55, of Prescot Road, Liverpool, was accused of the following in Rhos-on-Sea on June 20, 2022:

  • Stealing a doormat, depicting the Welsh flag, from Sarah Mugglestone.
  • Carrying a Stanley knife at Pine Grove.
  • Possessing four tablets of Subutex, a class C drug.

He gave indicated guilty pleas to all of the above at Llandudno Magistrates’ Court on January 11.

Thorpe was ordered to pay fines of £250, costs to the Crown Prosecution Service of £85, and a victim surcharge of £100.

This totaled £435, to be paid as a full lump sum within 28 days.

An application was made for deductions from Thorpe’s benefits.

The blade was ordered to be confiscated from Thorpe, and the drugs were forfeited and destroyed.
