Timmins was sentenced to 32 months in prison and disqualified from driving for 18 months.
He was also given a five year Community Behaviour Order which prohibits him from remaining in any shop or commercial premises if asked to leave by the staff or entering any premises to which he has already been banned or excluded from.
He is also required to engage with Norfolk Recovery Partnership.
