A Retford man took £300 from a cash machine as a woman walked away without taking her cash.
Mark Brown, 39, of Grange Road, was stood behind a woman at a Morrisons cash point who had withdrew her money but had failed to put it in her bag.
Brown, who works as a scaffolder, said that he did not know whose money it was and saw it as a ‘Brucie bonus.’
CCTV footage showed Brown taking the money and then drawing cash out of his own - which led to police tracing him through his bank details.
Brown pleaded guilty at Worksop Magistrates’ Court and was ordered to pay £300 compensation, £85 costs and £34 victim surcharge.
