A PREGNANT woman was caught stealing in Primark’s Dunfermline store.

Claire Duncan, 25, of Westwood Avenue, Kirkcaldy, has admitted that on November 12, at Primark, High Street, Dunfermline, she stole a backpack.

Duncan was not present at Dunfermline Sheriff Court when her solicitor, David McLaughlin, submitted her guilty plea.

Depute fiscal Dev Kapadia said the stolen item was valued at £15.

Mr McLaughlin said: “She was pregnant at the time and her mental health was not good.”

Sheriff Alastair Brown called for reports and deferred sentence until April 15.
