A pair of hungry burglars who stole a box of sandwiches after breaking into Wembley Stadium were snared when they returned to the scene of the crime two days later.
Willesden Magistrates’ Court heard Abbes Alsa’ed, 20, of Kings Drive, Wembley, and Amir Khan 19, of Grey Court, Hanger Lane in Alperton, also broke into the SSS Arena swiping a drawstring bag and a fleece jacket belong to staff on April 2.
They returned to the National Stadium two days later with Ashraf Altaher, 20, from Greenford, but fled when they were disturbed by staff.
The police were called after security staff recognised Alsa’ed and Khan from CCTV footage of the earlier theft.
All three were arrested and charged with burglary offences.

Alsa’ed and Khan were both given a 12 week jail sentence suspended for a year, placed under supervision and ordered to carry out community work.
Alsa’ed was also fined £100 for possession of cannabis and Khan was ordered to carry out 40 hours unpaid work for possessing CS gas - found in his home during a police search.
