Man stole perfume

Stealing £76 worth of perfume from a chemist in Stranraer landed a Newton Stewart man in the cells last weekend.

Martin Todd, 21, Benyellary, York Road, appeared from custody this week to admit taking a bottle of Ralph Lauren Romance eau de parfum and a bottle of DKNY Woman eau de toilette from Gordon the Chemist in Charlotte Street.

Defending, solicitor Michael Kilkerr said Todd gave the staff no explanation for his behaviour but that full recovery of the items was made.

Todd was ordered to do a 60-hour community payback order by Sheriff Kenneth Robb.
