An Inverness thief and drug addict had his sentence deferred until next month for a final assessment for an addiction treatment order.
Peter MacAllister, described as a prisoner at Inverness jail, admitted the reset of two cameras which had been stolen from business premises in the city’s Tomnahurich Street.
He also admitted breaking into a shop in Church Street, Inverness, on October 21 and stealing a charity box containing money.
The 39-year-old was seen by police in Castle Wynd, Inverness, at 11.20am carrying a bag which contained the cameras.
Depute fiscal Roderick Urquhart said the cameras appeared to be out-of-date 35mm single lens reflex cameras which were not of a particularly well-known brand.
“They were Chinese copies and had an estimated value of £100 and it transpired that they had come from a house-breaking at a commercial premises that has a sideline on old cameras.”
MacAllister will re-appear on April 29 and was again remanded.
