A KELTY man found guilty recently of carrying out a £48,000 theft from his father-in-law has been jailed for a domestic offence.

Mark Green, 35, of Croftangry Road, but currently in custody, appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on August 8, at his home, he behaved in a threatening or abusive manner by shouting, swearing, kicking a door and making threats to his partner.

Depute fiscal Azrah Yousaf said that Green had returned home shortly before 10pm. “He immediately became disruptive and abusive towards his partner who became upset,” she went on.

“When detained by the police, the accused became angry and began to shout. He said to his partner, ‘You’ll be f****** sorry’.”

Defence solicitor Ian Beatson said: “He was on a curfew at the time and was under pressure and strain. He has struggled with alcohol issues in the past.”

Sheriff Pino di Emidio jailed Green for 120 days.

Green has still to be sentenced after being convicted along with his partner of stealing her father’s life savings of £48,700.

They broke into his home when he was on holiday and stole the cash from a safe.

The couple then blew the money in a nine-week spending spree buying three cars, a holiday, plastic surgery and other items including a computer and eight pairs of Ugg boots.
