Mr Ferrie said: “There is a background of drugs. She had fallen back into the position where she was stealing to fund her drug habit.”
Sheriff William Summers said Baxter, whose address was given in court papers as Cruden Crescent, Aberdeen, had a “raft of previous convictions”, but also noted that the clothes had been fully recovered.
He fined Baxter £130.
