A MAN left his grandma feeling unsafe in her own home after he stole more than 100 Nintendo games from her.

Martin Collins took the games from his grandma’s home in Bishopstoke over five months, before selling them for more than £500 at second-hand game firm CEX to fund an alcohol habit.

The 32-year-old’s offending breached another order imposed for handling stolen goods.

Sital Mond, prosecutor, told Southampton Magistrates’ Court the 119 games had been for Collins’ cousins but he would take a few games at a time until they had all been sold off.

In a statement read to the court, Mary Dawtrey, Collins’ grandma, said: “This matter has left me really upset because a family members as stolen from me.He used to lived here for 30-years and no longer does anymore.

“After all this I have helped him. I don’t know how he can do this to me. I do not feel safe inside my own home anymore.”

A probation report compiled on Collins found that since he was given a community order in October, 2017 for stealing stolen goods he had completed zero of 110 hours of unpaid work required within the sentence.

However, Michael Mcgoldrick, mitigating, said longstanding alcohol issues and an epileptic attack had stopped him from attending court and community service.

Mr Mcgoldrick added that Collins hoped to turn his life around and that he had regained contact with his family following the incident between July and December 2017.

Collins, of Bodmin Road, Bishopstoke, pleaded guilty to theft, fraud by false representation and failing to answer bail.

He was given an 18-month community order, including 20 rehabilitation activity requirements and a 16-week curfew. He was ordered to pay £548.80 compensation and £160 costs.
