A 60-YEAR-OLD Dunfermline man who has just completed a restriction of liberty order is back on another ‘tag’ after reoffending.

James Dow was seen trying the door of a car in Lochgelly by a police officer.

As a result, Dow, of Meadow Place, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on July 13, at Mains street, Lochgelly, he forced the door of a vehicle with intent to steal.

Defence solicitor Alexander Flett said his client “doesn’t have any recollection of doing it but he was seen by a police officer trying a car door”.

The court was told that frequent offender Dow had just completed a restriction of liberty order.

Sheriff Craig McSherry imposed a new ‘tag’ for six months.
