HUNGRY thief John Delaney started to make himself a sandwich in the BP service station at Ely after stealing the items needed to make the snack.
Delaney was found preparing the picnic in the hot food area of the garage - normally only open to staff -- after he stole two baguettes, some roast chicken, mayonnaise and a bottle of cola.
"He was asked what he was doing, and then left without paying for the items," Ely magistrates were told by prosecutor Laura Mardell.
Delaney, 27, of Bishopsford Road, Morden, Surrey, admitted stealing �6.49 worth of goods on March 26.
