Claudiuadrian Olaru, 31, being drunk and disorderly

A drunken car wash worker caused a fracas in a Poulton town centre shop.

Claudiuadrian Olaru and his brother became annoyed after the shop assistant said she could not accept the £50 note they tried to pay with.

Olaru, a 31-year-old Rumanian, of Borden Lane, Bradford, pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly.

He was given a 12 months conditional discharge and ordered to pay £85 costs with £20 victims’ surcharge.

Prosecutor, Jim Mowbray, said police were called to Poulton’s Market Place convenience store on September 22 at 8pm where a shop assistant described Olaru and his brother as rude and abusive after she told them she could not accept a £50 note in payment.

The officer tried to speak to Olaru, but he was unpredictable and rude and the officer had to get hold of him.

Olaru’s brother then came up, tried to interfere and the officer had to push him away.

Patrick Nelligan, defending, said Olaru and his brother had not understood why the shop assistant would not accept the legal tender of £50.

The defendant’s brother went to change the note but Olaru said when he came back the assistant shouted at them to get out saying she would not serve them.

A teenager accused of abducting a 15-year-girl at Blackpool failed to report to police.

Anthony Innes, 18, of Mansfield Road, Layton, pleaded guilty to breaching a condition of his bail.

Blackpool magistrates agreed to rebail him.

Prosecutor, Jim Mowbray, said Innes had pleaded not guilty to child abduction and been bailed for a trial.

Innes bail conditions included reporting at Blackpool’s new police headquarters on Saturdays and Tuesdays.

On Saturday September 22 he failed to go to the police station and sign in.

Patrick Nelligan, defending, said his client did not know a lot about the justice system and had not fully appreciated what happened when he previously appeared in court.

Mr Nelligan added: “He thought he had to sign on at the police station on Fridays and Tuesdays. It was an innocent mistake.”
