A MAN was arrested after ignoring an order not to enter Huddersfield.
Desmond Ryan appeared before Kirklees magistrates in custody yesterday.
He had been bailed by police to attend the court to answer a shoplifting charge.
His bail conditions were not to enter Huddersfield town centre except for arranged appointments.
However the 54-year-old breached these when he was found sitting on a bench outside the White Hart Inn on Cloth Hall Street.
Ryan, of Blackhouse Road in Fartown, claimed that he had gone to see his solicitor.
However this appointment hadn’t been arranged so he was technically in breach of his bail.
Ryan, who has 60 convictions to his name, also admitted stealing from the Farmfoods Store in Market Street.
On June 21 he stole £12 worth of frozen food from the store.
Ryan is due in court today to be sentenced for three further thefts and breaching his anti-social behaviour order.
Magistrates agreed to readmit him to bail and warned Ryan to go straight home after his hearing.
