Jones broke into Trinity Pharmacy in the early hours of Tuesday, July 30. He raided the South Street store for drugs.

Around three-and-a-half hours later, a Bishop’s Stortford police constable found him passed out at the Thorley Neighbourhood Centre.

Beside him on the ground was a bag filled with the stolen medication.

Jones was also responsible for a burglary at St Andrews Pharmacy in Hertford on July 27 and the theft of a razor worth £8.29 from Boots in Ware on June 15.
