A 41- year- old has been given “a break” after owning up to stealing sweets.
Craig Ferguson, of Elba Gardens in Ayr, pled guilty to pinching confectionary from Sweetieland in the town’s High Street.
He also admitted to having a quantity of cannabis to “roll a wee joint”.
The court heard that the treats amounted to £ 4 and there was a full recovery.
Adressing Ferguson, Sheriff John Montgomery said: “You are getting a break today. You do this again and you won’t get a break next time.”
Ferguson was admonished and dismissed.
