A 34-year-old woman must prove to Campbeltown Sheriff Court that she can be of good behaviour for six moths.

Kara Pope, of 11c Kirk Street, Campbeltown, appeared before Sheriff Patrick Hughes last week and admitted stealing a telephone from a shop in the town on September 19 last year.

Procurator fiscal depute David Glancy told the court that staff within the shop challenged her. He added: ‘She told them, “Go call the police then”, before running off.’

After viewing the shop’s CCTV officers apprehended her later that day.

Defence agent Stephen MacSporran said that Pope was seeking help to address her addiction problems.

The sheriff deferred sentence for six months for her to be of good behaviour.

‘The matter will be dealt with on that day,’ he said.
