A LOCHGELLY woman awaiting sentence for shoplifting repeated the offence by stealing plants from a Cowdenbeath supermarket.

In the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court was Karen Drummond, 46, of Johnson Crescent.

She previously admitted that on March 14, she stole a quantity of clothes from Debenhams, Kingsgate Centre, Dunfermline.

Drummond was to have been sentenced for that offence on April 17 but did not turn up at court.

As a result, a warrant was granted and she appeared from custody, admitting another theft.

On May 5, she stole a quantity of plants at Aldi, Stenhouse Street, Cowdenbeath.

The court was told Drummond was already on a community payback order imposed last November.

Sheriff Pino di Emidio deferred sentence until August 21.
