A THIEF with the name of Mr Happy was fined for stealing a woman's mobile phone at a supermarket.
Elvis Happy, a German national, was caught stealing the phone at Tesco in Letterkenny, Co Donegal, on April 27, 2010.
The owner of the phone, Clio Faulkner, revealed to the court that her mobile phone's memory had been totally wiped and she had lost a lot of sentimental pictures.
The judge fined Happy €150 for the theft and ordered him to pay Ms Faulkner a further €150 for stress and the loss of her memories.
