Man who hurled bins through win­dows told to stay out of trou­ble

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - NEWS -

A man who caused thou­sands of pounds of dam­age by hurl­ing bins through a num­ber of shop win­dows in Mon­trose town cen­tre has been or­dered to be of good be­hav­iour un­til next May.

Michael Gray, 29, of Lit­tle Nurs­ery, Mon­trose, pre­vi­ously ad­mit­ted wil­fully or reck­lessly pick­ing up the bins and throw­ing them at win­dows of seven premises in Septem­ber last year.

The court heard the re­pair bill topped £6,000.

Gray, who was pre­vi­ously given a de­ferred sen­tence and told to stay out of trou­ble by a sher­iff, re­turned to For­far Sher­iff Court.

Sher­iff Derek Reekie heard he had not come to the at­ten­tion of the au­thor­i­ties over the pe­riod.

De­fence so­lic­i­tor Nick Markowski said Gray was re­ceiv­ing sup­port for men­tal health is­sues and a re­port be­fore the court con­firmed he had en­gaged with the ap­pro­pri­ate ser­vices.

Sher­iff Reekie told him: “This is a de­tailed re­port with all the pos­i­tive steps you are tak­ing to ad­dress the is­sues which af­fect you.

“This is clearly a se­ri­ous of­fence with se­ri­ous con­se­quences, but with the way things have de­vel­oped and the pos­i­tive steps you have taken, I am go­ing to give you the op­por­tu­nity to con­tinue along that road.

“It is over to you now.”

Also at For­far:

Steven Don­ald­son, 39, of Mor­ri­son Street, Kir­riemuir, was fined £250 after he pre­vi­ously ad­mit­ted be­hav­ing ag­gres­sively towards his part­ner at a prop­erty in Brechin on June 7 this year.

So­lic­i­tor Nick Markowski said the in­ci­dent hap­pened after the wo­man saw mes­sages on Don­ald­son’s mo­bile phone and a row broke out.

“They have now rec­on­ciled,” he said.

Gra­ham Sharpe, 51, of James Street, Carnoustie, was or­dered to be of good be­hav­iour un­til March 7 after ad­mit­ting breach­ing the peace at a house on Lin­gard Street, Carnoustie, on July 5.

The court heard the fright­ened fe­male oc­cu­pant had called po­lice after drunken Sharpe ar­rived at the ad­dress.
