Thief, 34, sent to jail for his part in ‘rogue’s bargain’
another person were captured on CCTV cutting through padlocks to gain access to a key box.
Solicitor advocate Jim Laverty said Weston accepted that custody was the only option, but said his position was, and always had been, that he had bought the camera equipment from another person and was looking to sell it on to make money.
“It was, in effect, a rogue’s bargain,” Mr Laverty said.
Weston, of Linlathen Farm, admitted that on July 15 last year, at Cash Converters, Whitehall Crescent, he reset an iPod Nano, it having been dishonestly appropriated by theft by housebreaking, and on July 22 last year, at the same place, he reset a quantity of camera lenses, them having been dishonestly appropriated by theft by housebreaking.
He also admitted that on July 24 last year, at Commercial Street, he reset a digital camera, it having been dishonestly appropriated by theft by housebreaking, while on two bail orders.
Weston also admitted that on November 2 last year, he broke into the business premises at Economy Car & Van Hire, Liff Road, and stole a quantity of car keys, while on bail, and that on November 8 last year, in Lambs Lane, he possessed heroin.
Sheriff Lorna Drummond jailed Weston for a total of 30 months.
