A man who stole more than 100 pieces of confectionery from a Palmerston North service station said he did it because he was "hungry".

John Moses Tawhai, 33, pleaded guilty in the Palmerston North District Court to theft after taking $231 worth of chocolate from the Majestic Service Station on October 21 last year.

Judge Jennifer Binns sentenced Tawhai to 50 hours community work and ordered him to pay reparation.

Should the media report suicide?

Yes, we shouldn't sweep it under the carpet and pretend it doesn't happen.

No, it's upsetting and a private matter and there's the danger of copycats.
