A MAN has been sent to prison after breaking into a staff locker room at the John Radcliffe Hospital and stealing a worker’s car keys.

Christopher Paul Green, also known as ‘Greeny’, admitted breaking into the private room at the JR on February 19 and taking a Superdry jacket and wallet with him.

At Oxford Magistrates on March 19, the 37-year-old, of no fixed abode, admitted breaching a conditional discharge order of six months imposed only a month earlier by the same court for an assault on a woman in Banbury and three thefts from WHSmiths.

He also appeared by live link the same day charged with a spate of thefts from Co-op in York.

He stole two bottles of wine, costing £10, on March 4 and went back the next day taking four bottles of wine, costing £25.25.

As a result, he was sent to prison for 42 days because the ‘offence was so serious and aggravated by previous defending’.

He must also pay compensation of £60.
