A man stole more than £1,800 worth of vacuum cleaners and alcohol from a Glasgow shop.

David Hutchison was caught on September 16 and 20, 2022, both times at Asda on Helen Street.

He stole vacuum cleaners, alcohol and soft drinks.

The 44-year-old appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court after he pleaded guilty to two charges of theft.

Sheriff Vincent Lunny remarked it was a "significant amount".

Hutchinson's lawyer said: "He has paid my office over £300 to date.

"It’s terrible and he accepts that. It meets the threshold for custody but alternatives exist. He could clearly benefit from supervision. He is only Universal Credit at the moment.

"He is due to get his driving licence back. He picks up work easily."

The sheriff told Hutchison: "Given your record, I would be well within my right to jail you. I am not going to do that.

"This is very much a direct alternative to custody. If the matter gets back to me, my hands are tied."

Hutchison, of Ayr, was sentenced to 12 months of supervision with a four-month restriction of movement requirement, which will require him to stay at his home between 8pm and 7am each day.

He was also ordered to repay £1885 to Asda.
