Dundee air freshener thief ‘asks to go to jail’

The Tesco store on Riverside Drive in Dundee.

David Maley, 44, of Soapwork Lane House, Soapwork Lane, has been jailed for four months.

Maley admitted that on January 17, at Tesco Riverside, he stole a quantity of air fresheners and razors.

Solicitor Kevin Hampton told the court Maley asked for a custodial disposal as he did not want to waste the social work department’s time in having to compile background reports.
