A MAN has been jailed for stealing dolls worth more than £2,000 from a Dunfermline supermarket.

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

As a result, William Innes, 29, of Western Drylaw Drive, Edinburgh, but currently in jail, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

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

Depute fiscal Alistair McDermid told the court the value of the stolen goods was £2,160. There was recovery of goods worth £720 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 had resulted in numerous shoplifting and drugs offences.

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