Prosecuting solicitor Becky Allsop said: “He entered a guilty plea to a shop theft in Derbyshire and he has also committed this offence while at large in respect of warrants in Northamptonshire.”

The court heard that Mould also pleaded guilty to Northamptonshire offences including another shop theft, failing to surrender to court, theft of a motorcycle and driving with no insurance.

He was also previously convicted in his absence of three offences of burglary in relation to the Conservative Club, at Corby.

Defence solicitor Ben Strelley said there has been a relapse in his personal circumstances.

Magistrates remitted the case to be dealt with at Northamptonshire magistrates’ court where Mould’s case is due to be considered on October 2.
