‘Desperation’ led a Dundee man to steal from a city centre toy shop on two consecutive days, the sheriff court has heard.
Colin Ewen, of St Boswells Terrace, was remanded for stealing toys worth more than £200 from a shop in the Overgate shopping centre.
The 36-year-old admitted taking items from Toy Town on both Friday and Saturday.
Solicitor Jim Laverty said Ewen, who has struggled with drug addiction, committed the thefts out of “desperation” because of difficulties with his Universal Credit payments.
Sentence was deferred until later this month.
