'Keep the noise down', Sheriff warns youth
Published: 26 Aug 2013 13:00
On Thursday (15 August) Lindsay Brooks, procurator fiscal depute, told Alloa Sheriff Court that Ryan Rennie (21) breached an Anti-social Behaviour Order - preventing him or guests to blare music in his home.
Ms Brooks said that the concierge and warden of the accused's supported accommodation, in Alloa's Katrine Court, responded to reports of excessively loud music at around 4.20am the day previously (14 August).
Rennie was unresponsive to knocks at the door, so the police were called out at 4.30am.
Officers were also unable to get Rennie's attention.
A joiner was contacted to gain access, however Rennie eventually unlocked the door at 5.15am.
Defending, Jim Savage said his client - who had moved into the tenancy a week before - had been drinking during the course of the evening, fallen asleep and hadn't wakened at the attempts of the police, warden or concierge.
Sheriff Alastair Brown admonished Rennie for the noise, but granted the forfeiture of the stereo equipment.
Sheriff Brown warned Rennie, "If you go out and buy another stereo, keep the noise down."
