A bingo club worker had no idea how he came to be sitting on a suitcase stolen from a university student’s car, a court heard.
Gary Bailey said he remembered drinking in a casino, then finding himself in a back yard.
Bailey, 33, of Clifton Drive South, St Annes, pleaded guilty to stealing luggage.
He was fined £120 with £85 costs and ordered to pay £200 compensation plus £20 victims’ surcharge by Blackpool magistrates.
Philip Hall, prosecuting, said on September 27 a student on her way back to university visited Blackpool and left her luggage in the boot of her car.
She returned to find the car had been broken into and a witness pointed her to where the culprits had gone.
The student went to a rear yard and saw Bailey and another man sitting on her suitcase.
