Jamie Bradford, 18, of Sandy Lane, was placed on a 12 month order.

Worksop Magistrates’ Court heard that Bradford and a friend had gone to Retford on 3rd November to buy cannabis, but after failing they went on a ‘mad one’.

Bradford and his friend damaged the scooter trying to steal it and then stole the bike.

In mitigation the court heard that Bradford had been trying to get into less trouble, but was finding it difficult because of his past.

His sentence includes education and training, £90 compensation and £60 victim surcharge.
