A DRUG addict smashed a window at his sister's home after she refused to give him money for heroin.

Blackburn magistrates heard when his sister came out of the house Colin Ormerod said: "Now look what you have made me do."

Ormerod, 38, of Coal Clough Lane, Burnley, pleaded guilty to causing £20 worth of damage to a window belonging to Paula Ormerod.

He was made subject to a curfew between 8pm and 8am for for weeks and ordered to pay £20 compensation, £85 costs and £85 victim surcharge.

He was also made subject to a restraining order which prohibits him from having any contact with his sister for six months.

Catherine Allan, prosecuting, said Ormerod went to his sister's home and asked her to buy some chocolate off him for £5.

"She told him to go away and he said just £4 because he hadn't got any methadone," said Miss Allan. "She said no again and shut the door and then heard the sound of breaking glass."

Mark Williams, defending, said things had become strained between Ormerod and his sister since the death of his father.

"He was a passenger in a car being driven by the defendant and that matter is still being investigated by the police," said Mr Williams.

He said Ormerod's benefits were paid into his sister's bank account and she gave it to him.

"He went round to get some of his money if he had any left and if not borrow a few pounds," said Mr Williams.
