At Derry Magistrates' Court on Monday, Denis Bradley from Ballymagowan Avenue in the Creggan area of the city admitting stealing the £2.76 sandwich from the Centra supermarket at Strand Road on 18 February 2012.

A bench warrant for his arrest on the sandwich theft charge was issued for by the court last September after Bradley had gone to England to work as a bricklayer.

Solicitor Seamus Quigley said Bradley had spent 24 hours in custody over the theft at the time.

Bradley, who walked out of the supermarket and got into a taxi without paying for the sandwich, refused to co-operate with the police and with the supermarket owner in terms of restitution.

As well as being fined £100 he was also ordered to pay the owner £10 compensation and he was given 20 weeks to pay the fine.

If he had stolen millions through Insider dealing or high Level Banking fraud, he would have received a knighthood and a big golden handshake.
