A burglar coming down off amphetamine was caught after having sex with a teddy bear at the property he broke into.
38-year-old Paul Mountain couldn't resist the stuffed toy, Blackburn magistrates court heard.
Mountain, of Darwen, Lancashire, pleaded guilty to burglary of a shed near Darwen, with intent to steal.
He was remanded on bail for the preparation of a pre-sentence report.
Dominic Howells, prosecuting, said the owner of an allotment found the shed had been broken into and the contents scattered around outside it.
Among the wreckage she found the teddy bear.
The teddy bear was then passed to police, who recovered DNA from inside it.
Mr Howells said Mountain told police: 'He was coming down off amphetamine and felt overwhelming need for sexual relief.'
