Two people have been given supervision orders after breaking into a house and stealing a power cable.
Juliet McDonald, 43, and Alexander Reid, 44, appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court over the incident which occurred on November 5.
They previously pled guilty to breaking into a house on College Bounds in Fraserburgh and stealing a power cable.
David Sutherland, McDonald’s solicitor, said: “She has expressed shame and regret.”
Iain Jane, representing Reid, described the incident as “utterly bizarre” and said the cable was worth £8. He added “confusion” related to drug misuse had played a part.
Sheriff Morag McLaughlin placed McDonald, of College Bounds, Fraserburgh, on a tag for six months as well as handing her 12 months of supervision.
Reid, of Gaw Street, Fraserburgh, was given a nine-month tag and 18 months of supervision.
