A drug addict behind a one-man crime wave shouted “that’s not a bad sentence” as he was sent to jail by a judge.

Kalvin Abram, 33, admitted the crimes when he appeared before District Judge Pam Baldwin sitting at Blackpool Magistrates Court.

She sent Abram, of Enfield Road, North Shore, to prison for 294 days and as he was taken to the cells he shout-ed: “That’s not a bad sentence Miss.”

Abram admitted shoplift-ing steak from Lidl in Lytham.

When he was seen on CCTV and stopped, he assaulted the police officer called to arrest him as well the store manager.

He pleaded guilty to going equipped to steal at Lidl by using a foil lined bag designed to cheat security systems.

He also admitted interfering with a Smart car in Blackpool, breaking all of its windows valued at £1,000.

Abram also admitted burgling an outhouse on Warbre-ck Hill Road, North Shore.

He was also responsible for a burglary at the Cohen’s su-permarket in Cleveleys where he smashed a window and stole prescription only items

from the pharmacy as well as items from shop shelves.

When he was arrested for that offence he resisted the officer who apprehended him.

Abram also admitted steal-ing two bottles of Jack Daniels from Sainsbury’s.

Pete Bardsley, prosecuting, said Abram told police he stole to help feed his heroin habit.

The offences happened in February and March.

Mr Bardsley said: “He said he could not remember the incident at the chemist’s shop in Cleveleys whatsoever.”

Peter Cave, defending, said: “My client is resigned to going to prison.

“He has a chaotic lifestyle driven by drugs.”
