A drug-user who stole two packets of razor blades from an Alfreton store was caught red-handed by an eagle-eyed security guard.

Chesterfield magistrates’ court heard on Monday, April 7, how Barry Bennett, 37, of Openacre, Ironville, had stolen the razor blades from Wilkinson’s.

Prosecuting solicitor John Cooper said: “A security guard watched CCTV and watched Bennett on the toiletries’ aisle and saw him select razor blades and conceal them in his left-hand coat pocket.
