Miss Caroll said: 'He was seen on CCTV taking the items to the shop floor and taking them back to his own wine department and using the de-tagging device to remove the tag from the t-shirt.
'It is the thought that he did this with all of the items that he took.
'On the 12 February he was serving customers on the Ralph Lauren till and was serving a man who was his nephew.
'He sold his nephew a jacket that had a price tag of £750 but he sold it for £395. His nephew returned later that day and was given a refund of £395 but for a different jacket so the profit stolen was for £750.
As a result the operations manageress at Selfridges interviewed the defendant.
'During that interview he denied any wrongdoing but the manageress said to him ''I had hoped you would be honest but clearly you are not''.
Coxon was later arrested and told police they would find cannabis and amphetamines in his BMW, which had personalised plates.
His car was searched and a Mont Blanc jacket was recovered, along with two mobile phones a white Samsung and an old Nokia.
Police confiscated a total of 35g worth of cannabis, with a street value of between £360 to £720. Benzo tablets were also found in the car, at a street value of between £360 and £730, along with mixing agents and a quantity of Ketamine.
In a prepared statement Coxon told police the cannabis was intended for him and for his friends and it was not for supply.
He also said that he would repay Selfridges. His lawyer Chudi Grant said: 'His issues with drugs started because he was hopeful to pursue a professional rugby career. He had injuries because of a subsequent accident.
'His career didn't turn out the way he had hoped and he found resonance and comfort in drugs. He began to rise through the ranks of different drugs, to cocaine and harder drugs
