After being alerted to the robbery, Northumbria Police found traces of Trotter’s blood on the floor and on the outside of a box of pizza sauces.
Trotter, who was arrested and charged with burglary, appeared at NewCastle Crown Court last week to admit his offence.
Detective Constable Stuart Havery, of Northumbria Police, told the Sunderland Echo: ‘He broke into the business premises and made away with the till before attempting to wash away the evidence to make sure he was not punished for his actions.
‘Unsurprisingly, the extent of his crime could not be hidden by a splash of Pepsi – and he’ll now face the consequences of his selfish actions.’
