A FORTH VALLEY man has been jailed for offences going back almost four years.

Kevin McKeown had been given the chance of community-based sentences, but had repeatedly breached the orders.

His luck finally ran out when he appeared for sentencing at Alloa Sheriff Court via video-link from jail.

McKeown, 33, of Forth Street, Stirling, was being sentenced again for a series of offences with his community orders having been revoked.

On June 22, 2017, at Hallpark, Sauchie, he shouted, climbed over a security fence, repeatedly banged on a window of a flat occupied by his former partner and entered the property uninvited.

He then stole food on July 5, 2017 at Aldi, Whins Road, Alloa, and from Poundland, Mill Street, Alloa on August 21, 2017.

On September 7, 2017, at Beechwood, Sauchie, he assaulted his partner by grabbing her by the hair.

Then, on various occasions on March 20, 2019 at Argyll Street, Alloa, and elsewhere he shouted and swore at police then struggled violently with them.

Finally, on July 21, 2019 at Craigview, Alloa, he was in possession of diamorphine.

Sheriff Alison Michie imposed jail terms totalling 10 months and 48 days.
