Drug addict stole from his grandmother
DRUG addict Michael Dalby left his grandmother “angry and upset” after throwing her kindness back in her face by stealing from her, a court heard.
Dalby, 28, of Rutland Street, Grimsby, admitted stealing a silver serviette ring, belonging to Jennifer Redpath, on October 22.
He also admitted stealing a television, valued at £179, from Asda and breaching his anti-social behaviour order on February 8.
Jayne Wilson, prosecuting, told Grimsby Magistrates’ Court that Dalby had been living with his 73-year-old grandmother.

She realised after he had been doing some washing-up that a silver serviette ring had gone missing from her home in Heneage Road.
She later said: “I’m angry, upset and disappointed at Michael’s behaviour. He has no right or excuse to steal from me.”
She added she believed he should treat people with respect when they showed him kindness – instead of stealing things for his “next fix” of drugs.
Roy Foreman, mitigating, said Dalby had been brought up in a house where Class A drugs were used, dealt and were “the order of the day”.
Both his parents had served in prison for supplying drugs and possessing them with intent to supply.
“From the age of 13, he was given Class A drugs and became a runner for his parents,” said Mr Foreman.
“That has blighted his life.”
Dalby was the youngest dealer to be locked up for Operation Troop drug offences, as reported.
He was 17 when he was given an eight-month detention and training order in November 2002 after admitting two offences of supplying heroin.
He was jailed for a year last year and had since been recalled to prison.
Dalby was locked up for six months for the latest offences.
