A Dunfermline man stole a bottle containing more than £4500.

The culprit was 41-year-old Wayne Hardy, of Macbeth Road.

Hardy was not present for a hearing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court but a guilty plea was submitted by his solicitor on his behalf.

Hardy admitted that between December 10 and 16, 2021, at Inchkeith Drive, Dunfermline, he stole a plastic bottle containing £4570.

Sheriff Garry Sutherland deferred sentence until April 19 for reports and Hardy’s attendance.
