Dolls worth over £2000 stolen from Asda



A man has been jailed for stealing more than £2000-worth of dolls from a Fife supermarket.

The toys, which were still in delivery boxes, were taken from an Asda store in Dunfermline by a serial thief to feed his drug addiction.

As a result, William Innes (29), from Edinburgh but currently in jail, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on 6th October at Asda, Halbeath Retail Park, he stole a quantity of dolls.

Depute fiscal Alistair McDermid told the court the value of stolen goods was £2160. There was recovery of £720-worth of the goods but the rest were never found.

Innes is already serving a 12-month jail term imposed in Edinburgh in January.

The court was told Innes had a long-standing cocaine addiction which has resulted in numerous shoplifting and drugs offences.

Sheriff Craig McSherry imposed a six-month jail term to be served consecutively to his current sentence.
