At Dundee Sheriff Court, Karol Zblewski and Tomasz Miller pleaded guilty to a total of 11 charges of resetting and using a stolen credit card to obtain goods and money in Dundee.

Zblewski, 29, a prisoner at Perth, had sentence deferred until October 5 for the Crown to make investigations into the existence of a European arrest warrant for him and for the consideration of a deportation notice.

Miller, 45, also a prisoner at Perth, had sentence deferred to the same date for a background report to be prepared.

Zblewski and Miller both admitted that between March 11-17, at Dundonald Street, they reset a credit card and a pair of binoculars.

They also admitted that on March 17, at Tesco Metro, Murraygate, they used a stolen credit card in the name of Una S Berry to make a contactless payment and obtain a bottle of juice.
