An Aberdeen teenager has been handed a deferred sentence after he admitted bike thefts.
Kieran Sim, 18, appeared at the city’s sheriff court for sentencing after admitting three charges.
He pled guilty to breaking into a shed and stealing two pedal cycles on February 27 last year.
He also admitted stealing a bike from an address at Albury View the following day.
And on the same day he admitted breaking into a shed at Bloomfield Court and stealing two bikes.
Sim’s defence agent said his client “accepted responsibility” for the offences, but added that his client’s role in the shed break-ins had been as “look-out”.
Sheriff Gill told Sim, whose address was given in court as Rosehill Court, Aberdeen, that she would place him on a structured deferred sentence for six months.
She told him: “I have read the report. It’s very positive.”
