An asylum seeker with a heroin habit twice stole clothes from the same shop.
Muhannd Turki, 30, of Central Drive, Blackpool, admitted two offences of theft.
He was sentenced to 12 months supervision, nine months drugs rehabilitation and ordered to pay £35 compensation by Blackpool magistrates.
Steven Townley, defending, said his client a Libyan national, did not work or claim benefits and relied on an allowance from his sister.
Turki, who had developed an addiction for smoking heroin, had stolen the clothes to wear himself.
