A Fife man took his grandmother’s cash cards and stole almost £4000 from the woman, who has now died.
Kris Hunter (23), of Houldsworth Street, Blairhall, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.
He admitted that on 5th September last year at an address in Rintoul Avenue, Blairhall, he stole a wallet and contents, including post office bank cards belonging to his gran, now deceased, and his 82-year-old grandfather.
He also admitted that between 5th September and 7th October at post office Queen Anne Street, Methilhaven Road, Methil, Crossroads post office, Methil and High Street, Inverkeithing, he used the stolen bank card in the name of his grandmother to steal £2070 from ATMs.
Then between 5th September and 7th October at Queen Anne Street post office, the Dunfermline Co-op store, the post office branch at Methilhaven Road, Methil and the Key Store post office branch, Forres Drive, Kirkcaldy, he stole £1816.88 from the post office account belonging to his grandmother and grandfather.
Hunter also admitted that on 5th March this year at Houldsworth Street, Blairhall, he was in possession of cannabis.
The court was told Hunter is already on a restriction of liberty order for another offence.
Sheriff Alison McKay called for reports saying, “These charges are serious and unpleasant, frankly.” Hunter will return to court to be sentenced on 31st May.ard
