He was on video again at Falkirk Sheriff Court last Thursday, appearing from custody remotely having admitted the thefts he committed in Bo’ness this year, at Scotmid, Linlithgow Road on January 7 and Braehead on January 19, as well as an intent to steal in Seaview Place on January 5.

The court heard Wilkie entered the town’s Scotmid store and pinched £135 worth of goods. Then a couple of weeks later Wilkie was caught red handed on video again when he pinched £1800 worth of Makita tools from a locksmith’s parked van in Braehead.

Sheriff Christopher Shead sentenced Wilkie, Matthew Steele Court, Bo’ness, to nine months in prison.
