A man stole meat worth more than £150 from a supermarket.
Colin Ewen, of St Boswells Terrace, claimed he stole the meat because he hadn’t received Universal Credit payments for three weeks.
The 36-year-old pleaded guilty to stealing meat from Tesco, Riverside Drive, on Saturday.
Solicitor Jim Laverty said Ewen was “bereft of any financial assistance”.
Sentence was deferred until April 24.
