A DUMBARTON woman who stole clothing and hardware from Clydebank stores has been warned to be of good behaviour.

Angela Barnes was in the dock at Dumbarton Sheriff Court on Thursday after previously pleading guilty to stealing the goods from Clyde Shopping Centre’s Primark and Harry Corry stores on January 18.

Sheriff William Gallacher told the court he did not “imagine to learning anything” from a psychiatric report on the 34-year-old – who also failed to appear at court in relation to the matter on February 8.

However, Barnes’ solicitor Judith Reid pleaded to defer the case until a report was ready.

Ms Reid said: “She has clearly been extremely fragile at the start of last year.”

She also stated Barnes, of Cumbrae Cresent South, had started using available facilities to manage her difficulties.

Sheriff Gallacher told Barnes: “I’m going to defer sentence for you to be of good behaviour.

“The court social worker will note that supervision maybe apt in the future to assure that happens.”

Sentence was deferred until June 22 for a criminal justice social work report to be obtained.
