A 47-YEAR-OLD man has been sent back to jail after being caught stealing three bottles of perfume worth £194 from Debenhams in Dunfermline.

Steven Carruthers, 47, of Robert Smith Court, Lumphinnans, appeared from custody at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on August 26, at Debenhams, he stole a quantity of fragrance.

Defence solicitor Alexander Flett said his client had been released from a six-month jail term for shoplifting two weeks before his latest offence.

“He had no income which led to the theft here,” he added.

Sheriff Chris Shead jailed Carruthers for four months.
