A KELTYBRIDGE man was found guilty of causing neighbours in the village fear and alarm.

Michael Waters, 70, had denied, at Perth Sheriff Court, stalking neighbours Robert and Lindsay Robertson and causing them fear and alarm, and causing Patricia Fenwick fear and alarm by acting aggressively.

The Court had heard that Waters had moved bins and flower pots, painted a wall purple without permission and repeatedly stared at his neighbours.

The offence involving the Robertsons occurred between August 2011 and November 2016 and Patricia Renwick between September 2015 and 2016.

Sheriff Derek Reekie deferred sentence on Waters to be of good behaviour.
