A shopper who was incensed when the jumper he ordered online didn’t have the logo he wanted took matters into his own hands in a bizarre crime which landed him in court.
Kaenen Lamb was furious after the £160 Stone Island sweatshirt arrived without the brand’s famous patch on it.
Instead of sending it back, the Manchester Evening News reports, he decided to take a logo from another item of clothing from Harvey Nichols, and ended up getting charged with criminal damange.
The logo is attached to Stone Island sweatshirts with buttons.
He committed the unusual crime at around 10.40am on July 24, Manchester Crown Court heard.
He then left the store with the patch, to put on the jumper he had purchased online.
But he was spotted by staff who checked CCTV and spotted the incident.
Lamb, 19, pleaded guilty to criminal damage. In an interview with police Lamb told officers the item he ordered online never came with the Stone Island logo.
Prosecuting, Claire Brocklebank said that the jumper can no longer be sold by Harvey Nichols because the patch had been removed.
Sentencing, the judge Recorder Alistair Webster QC said: “This was hardly the way to deal with the circumstances that confronted you.”
Defending, Emma Haley said Lamb had just left foster care before his offending took place and that he regrets his actions.
Lamb, of Lower Bank, Rochdale , also faced sentence for burglary and aggravated vehicle taking.
He was sentenced to a total of 12 months in prison, nine months for burglary, two months for aggravated vehicle taking and a further one month for a bail act offence. He received no separate penalty for criminal damage.
Founded in 1982, Stone Island is known for being popular with football fan ‘casuals’ in England and across Europe.
In July, Liam Gallagher took to Twitter to demand the return of a number of his Stone Island parkas which were taken from his hotel room while he performed at Glastonbury Festival.
The former Oasis frontman still took to the stage in a Stone Island parka that hadn’t been stolen. Similar coats sell for up to £500.
