The son of the infamous 'lotto gran' – who turned to a life of crime following his mum's death – has been banned from a string of shops to 'give them a break'.
Brandon Scott's life spiralled into drug-taking and criminal behaviour after he found the body of his mother, Susanne Hinte, in August 2017, a court was told.
The 24-year-old admitted to 11 thefts, including stealing a schoolboy's bike, and was slapped with a criminal behaviour order on Friday (25/6).

He was banned from entering or loitering outside a string of shops in Malvern including Londis, Wilko, Iceland, Waitrose, Matalan, Co-op, Tesco Express and Bradfords Building Supplies by Worcester Magistrates Court.
Scott, of Powick, Worcs., is also banned from B&M in Worcester and a Co-op in Pershore.
The order also states he must not loiter outside shops with his ex-partner Natalie Cull.
Sarah Hurd, prosecuting, said: “It gives them [the shops] all a break.
"He can do that and accepts he will.”

JPs heard Scott had been a 'mummy's boy' and was left heartbroken by his mum’s death.
He sobbed as his barrister explained how his mother claimed half the £33million lotto jackpot prize saying she had put the winning ticket in the washing machine.
Judith Kenny, defending, said that Scott found her struggling, before she died and had to deal with that on top of his mother's notoriety as the 'lotto gran'.
“Not long after that he lost the home, and a child," she said.
"He became addicted to class A drugs – an opportunity to bury his problems.
“Once it got hold of him he became involved in criminal activity.”
The court heard he stole £208 worth of pizzas, steaks, cheeses, ice lollies, clothing, cleaning products and washing up liquid between September 2021 and this January.
Scott also stole toys, advent calendars, LED lights, candles and electric toothbrushes from a Wilko shop in Malvern.
In May Scott was made subject of another 12-month community order requiring him to complete 20 rehabilitation activity days.
He was also given a 16-week curfew, told to pay £300 compensation to the victim, £262 owed to the shops and £95 in victim surcharge.
Susanne was given the 'lotto gran' moniker in January 2016 after sending a lottery ticket to Camelot questioning whether she'd won half of the National Lottery jackpot.
She made a failed bid for the mega pay-out saying she had put the winning ticket through the wash with a pair of jeans.
Camelot were unable to verify the numbers and the real winner, who chose to stay anonymous, came forward.
She died in August 2017, aged 49, following a suspected heart attack at her home in Borrowdale Drive, Worcester.
Paramedics and police were called to her semi-detached home after being found unresponsive by Brandon, who was aged 18 at the time.
