Vicky Lee, mitigating, said: "Problems started around two years ago when he and his partner had a house fire and they lost everything, including all of their belongings. Difficult financial circumstances led to the behaviour and the offences."
Herdman was handed a £70 fine, told to pay £85 costs and a £20 victim surcharge.
