A man who broke into a cafe and then called police when he got stuck in a window trying to escape has been fined by magistrates.
Christopher Kelman, 34, of Didcot, Oxfordshire, forced his way into Upper Crust in Swindon on 30 January.
He then drank six beers before trying to escape through a window, Swindon magistrates heard.
Kelman admitted burglary and was fined £420, ordered to pay £11.92 in compensation, and £55 court costs.
On finding himself stuck, Kelman called for help from police officers, "who were only too happy to assist", prosecutor Nadeem Aullybocus said.
Cafe manager Stephen Ballard was alerted and after he informed police that £12 worth of alcohol was missing, Kelman was arrested for burglary.
