A 17-YEAR-OLD Cowdenbeath youth threw boulders through windows at his mum’s home on two successive days.

The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He previously admitted that on two separate occasions between March 2-3 at an address in Cowdenbeath, he wilfully or recklessly damaged property belonging to another by breaking a window by throwing stones at it.

Depute fiscal Katherine Fraser said that in the first incident, the youth had gone to his mum’s home at around 5pm because he wanted to pick up his belongings.

She was not at home but he decided to wait and after four hours was still there.

“He decided not to wait any longer and he picked up a large boulder and threw it through a window. He then went through the smashed window into the house and collected his belongings,” added the depute.

There was a similar incident the following day when the youth returned to his mother’s property.

She was out again when he arrived and an argument broke when she came back with two male companions.

On this occasion, the youth threw a rock at a window three times before it smashed.

Sheriff Alison McKay imposed a structured deferred sentence with a review on July 3.
