A 40-year-old man was caught trying to smuggle a SIM card into Glenochil prison.

The culprit was Osman Gharib, of Devon Crescent, Glasgow, who appeared at Alloa Sheriff Court with a translator.

He was previously convicted after a trial.

He was found guilty of an offence that on September 13, 2022 at HMP Glenochil, he attempted to take a SIM card into the prison.

He wrapped it in a piece of paper and attempted to conceal it in a bag of money to take to a prisoner there.

Sentence had been deferred for good behaviour and as he stayed out of further trouble, Sheriff Garry Sutherland admonished him.
