Re: A drug addict who threatened shop staff with a blood-filled syringe has been jailed for four years and three months.<br />
A judge at Mold Crown Court told Mervyn Hardy, 36, it was "a sick weapon".<br />
Hardy, of Wrexham, took a £599 CCTV system from Maplin's electrical store in the town on 30 April and threatened staff with the needle containing blood and water when they tried to intervene.<br />
He admitted robbery and possessing an offensive weapon on Wednesday. The court heard no-one was injured.<br />
Hardy entered the store after being seen hanging around outside by staff and immediately grabbed a CCTV system from a display near the door.<br />
When a staff member tried to stop the theft, Hardy brandished the syringe, prompting the employee to let go.
