A Cowdenbeath woman, who vandalised the tyres on a neighbour’s van after a row about a TV set, has been sentenced.

Angela Cooper, 44, of Broad Street, appeared in the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

She admitted that between November 18 and 19 in Broad Street, she damaged property belonging to another person by striking the tyres of a vehicle.

Cooper had gone to the door of a male acquaintance who lives nearby asking for the return of a TV set she had loaned to him and they had a verbal dispute.

The next morning the man discovered two tyres of his van had been punctured.

He then went to another neighbour and she phoned Cooper. With the phone on ‘speaker’, Cooper admitted: “Aye I did it because he has my TV."

Defence solicitor Stephen Morrison said: “She’s remorseful and embarrassed in sobriety. They are neighbours and would sometimes binge drink together.”

Sheriff Wylie Robertson fined Cooper £320 and ordered her to pay £125 compensation.
