A GLASGOW woman has been ordered to carry out unpaid work after shoplifting in Clacks.

Janine O'Neill appeared at Alloa Sheriff Court last week after pleading guilty to two charges of theft while a third similar charge was dropped.

Susannah Hutchison, depute fiscal, told the court last Thursday that at around 2pm on July 23, O'Neill stole six cans of Gordon's pink gin and a bottle of Irn-Bru from the Co-op on Clackmannan Main Street.

The next day, the 33-year-old stole a further three cans of the gin from the same store.

The total value of the items was £17. A plea of not guilty was accepted for stealing clothing from New Look at Shillinghill.

Mr Anderson, representing O'Neill, told the court that his client "appears to be getting her life back together" but conceded that she does have a history of non-compliance with community payback orders (CPO).

Sheriff David Mackie chastised O'Neill, of Castlefern Crescent, Rutherglen, for shoplifting "yet again".

She was given 12 months of supervision and ordered to carry out 120 hours of unpaid work.
