A LOCHGELLY shopkeeper was the target for threats and racist abuse.

The culprit was 57-year-old Francis Reynolds, who has now appeared in the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

Reynolds, of Drummond Square, Lochgelly, admitted that on September 5, at Kooner’s Grocers, Auchterderran Road, Lochgelly, he acted in a racially-aggravated manner towards the shopworker, by shouting, swearing and making threats of violence and racist comments.

Sheriff Charles MacNair called for reports and Reynolds will be sentenced on March 4.
