Hann later took police to where he had dumped the purse in a field.
There had originally been £120 in it, £40 was recovered but £80 was still missing.
Hann told the court he had been struggling with an alcohol problem.
“I just want to be a completely different person,” he said. “I have realised what an idiot I have been.”
Unemployed Hann was fined £40 and was ordered to pay £80 compensation, £85 costs and a Government-imposed £20 victims’ surcharge.
