Shoplifter who spat at employee jailed
A SHOPLIFTER who spat on a Tesco employee while out of prison on early release has been returned to jail.
At Dundee Sheriff Court, Alexander Cameron, 53, of Forth Crescent, was ordered to complete the outstanding 80 days of his sentence by Sheriff Alastair Brown, to be followed by a six-month jail term.
Cameron admitted that on November 7, at Tesco Metro, he stole groceries. He further admitted assaulting Mark McDade on the same date at the same place by spitting on him.
He also admitted that he behaved in a threatening or abusive manner likely to cause fear or alarm, shouted and swore and threw a bag of groceries and acted in an aggressive manner.
Sheriff Brown told Cameron: “Spitting is a disgusting form of behaviour and you did that while you were out on licence.”
