Church thief jailed

A man who stole from a church to feed his drug habit has been jailed.

Twenty-nine-year old Stephen Knox, 63 Sheuchan Street, Stranraer, took the money from St Joseph’s Church, Lewis Street, on May 25, shortly after he had been released from custody.

Sheriff Kenneth Robb sent Knox down for four months saying for anyone who stole from a church, prison was the only option.
