A MAN has appeared in court for stealing steaks and a bottle of wine from a Bradford district petrol station.

Scott Bairstow, 40, of Rycroft Avenue, Bingley, faced one theft from a shop charge.

He was caught after stealing five ribeye steaks and one bottle of rose wine, worth a total of £40, belonging to Marks and Spencer, from BP petrol filling station, Keighley Road, Bingley.

Bairstow was handed a six-month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £85 costs and a £26 victim surcharge for the offence.

A collection order was made and the court ordered for deductions to be made from Bairstow’s benefits.

The charge was contrary to the Theft Act 1968.

Bairstow pleaded guilty to the charge and was sentenced at Bradford & Keighley Magistrates’ Court on August 4, 2023.
