Blairgowrie Advertiser - - NEWS - Court Re­porter

A sho­plifter stole two bot­tles of spir­its from an Alyth Co-op.

Lee Simp­son (33) was re­manded in cus­tody while a back­ground re­port is pre­pared after ap­pear­ing at Perth Sher­iff Court.

Sher­iff Gil­lian Wade noted he is cur­rently on li­cence after be­ing freed early from a pre­vi­ous spell be­hind bars - and is also subject to a bail or­der.

He ad­mit­ted steal­ing two bot­tles of vodka from the su­per­mar­ket in The Square, Alyth, on De­cem­ber 22.

He was on a For­far Sher­iff Court bail or­der, dated Novem­ber 1, 2017, at the time.

A co-ac­cused, Mur­ray Fother­ing­ham (35), of Mor­ri­son Ter­race, Alyth, had not guilty pleas ac­cepted to charges of mak­ing off with the spir­its, along with a sand­wich, from the out­let the same day.

So­lic­i­tor Steve Laf­ferty, for Simp­son, said he would be pre­pared to ac­cept any spe­cial bail con­di­tions, in­clud­ing a cur­few or stay­ing out of Alyth al­to­gether.

But Sher­iff Wade re­manded him in cus­tody un­til Jan­uary 19 pend­ing the prepa­ra­tion of a Com­mu­nity Jus­tice So­cial Work re­port.

Simp­son, of Dura Street, Dundee, ad­mit­ted pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions.
