A PREGNANT Townhill woman ended up in custody after a bizarre incident in which she smashed up her own cars.

Mica Conroy repeatedly drove a Mini into a parked BMW outside her home after an argument with her partner.

Extensive damage was caused to the vehicles, which are both owned by Conroy.

Conroy, 26, of Loch Street, admitted that on March 28, in Loch Street, she behaved in a threatening or abusive manner by repeatedly driving a car into another car.

Depute fiscal Azrah Yousaf said: “This is a domestic matter. The accused had been the subject of police concerns about domestic abuse in the past.

“At 7pm, neighbours could hear loud noises and saw the accused in her black Mini. Her partner was outside the car talking through the passenger window to her.

“She then started the engine and drove straight into a BMW parked nearby. This vehicle is also owned by the accused but used by her partner.

“She then reversed and drove into the BMW again. In all, she did this four times, causing substantial damage to both vehicles.”

Defence solicitor Roshni Joshi said her client was in the early stages of pregnancy and had spent time in custody following this incident because it was dealt with under domestic offence procedures.

She said her client was a first offender. There had been an argument with her partner, who moved the BMW near to the Mini. “She was in a heightened emotional state, agitated, angry and fearful,” added the solicitor.

Sheriff Derek Reekie said: “This is an extremely sad episode.” He deferred sentence for Conroy to be of good behaviour until July 11.
