Golf cart thief sent to prison

Evening Express (City Final) - - News -

A MAN has been jailed for steal­ing a golf cart from a garage. Gra­ham Houghton, also known as Grib­ble, 43, stole the golf cart along with a bi­cy­cle from an ad­dress on Fer­ry­hill Place in Aberdeen on July 28. De­pute fis­cal David Thor­burn told Aberdeen Sher­iff Court Grib­ble was seen on CCTV en­ter­ing a nearby bar with the items. He added the golf cart, val­ued at £150, and the bike, worth £200, were later re­cov­ered from a gar­den shed. Grib­ble, of Bal­na­gask Av­enue, Aberdeen, pled guilty to steal­ing a bike and golf cart. He had ini­tially also been charged with steal­ing a pair of golf shoes, but this was dropped from the charge. De­fence agent David Suther­land said his client had a “life-long bat­tle” with al­co­hol and drugs and had “re­lapsed” on the day in ques­tion. Sher­iff Morag Mclaugh­lin sen­tenced Grib­ble to six months be­hind bars.
