A man stole razor blades from a shop three times within six days.
James Duncan, 29, of Broughty Ferry Road, admitted a series of thefts from Boots, High Street, Dundee.
Duncan stole razor blades worth £112.98 from the store on October 5.
Then just four days later, Duncan returned to the shop and stole a further £85.98 worth.
Duncan also admitted entering the store on October 11 and stealing razor blades worth £120.98.
None of the goods were recovered, Dundee Sheriff Court heard.
An agent appearing on behalf of Duncan said that he had been “fighting with drug addiction problems” for some time.
Sentence was deferred until November 8 and Duncan was remanded.
