Wishaw Press - - CEREMONY -

A woman has been put un­der su­per­vi­sion af­ter steal­ing a se­ries of items from two stores in Mother­well.

Yvonne Wat­son was put on a com­mu­nity pay­back or­der with a su­per­vi­sion re­quire­ment for the next nine months af­ter she ad­mit­ted her crimes.

At Hamil­ton Sher­iff Court, Wat­son, of Dalziel Tower, Mother­well, pleaded guilty to a to­tal of four charges against her.

On Au­gust 1, at the Spar store in Shields Road, Wat­son stole a quan­tity of de­ter­gent, toi­letries and cof­fee.

The 37- year- old then went on a shoplift­ing spree at the Wilko Store in Bran­don Pa­rade South over the space of a few weeks.

On Oc­to­ber 23, Wat­son stole a gift­bag and a set of ra­zors.

She then re­turned to the store on Oc­to­ber 31 and nicked a num­ber of can­dles and ra­zors.

The fi­nal charge Wat­son ad­mit­ted was go­ing into the Wilko store on Novem­ber 16 and steal­ing four van­ity cases from the shop.

A charge that Wat­son be­haved in an ag­gres­sive man­ner to­wards po­lice of­fi­cers at her home ad­dress be­fore shout­ing and swear­ing at them was dropped by prose­cu­tors.

The of­fence was also al­leged to have taken place on Novem­ber 16.
