A shoplifter has been given unpaid work after admitting stealing cans of beer.
Richard Murison, 38, stole £12.94 of beer from Mastrick Grocers on Greenfern Place on September 11 last year.
Fiscal depute Rebecca Clark told Aberdeen Sheriff Court there was partial recovery of the items, worth £2.99.
Murison, of Elphinstone Court, Aberdeen, pled guilty to shoplifting.
Defence agent Iain McGregor said his client had “consumed a fair quantity of alcohol beforehand”.
Sheriff Ian Wallace ordered him to carry out 30 hours of unpaid work.
