A 31-year-old Inverness man who went on a theft spree in the city last summer will be sentenced next month.

Arin Proudfoot, described as an Inverness prisoner, appeared by video link at Inverness Sheriff Court represented by solicitor advocate Shahid Latif.

Proudfoot admitted four charges of theft by housebreaking, one of shoplifting and one of threatening behaviour by brandishing a bicycle chain.

Sheriff Gordon Fleetwood elected not to hear the full facts from fiscal depute Pauline Gair after Mr Latif asked for a background report and a drug treatment and testing order assessment for his client.

Sheriff Fleetwood agreed and deferred sentence until March 19.

Proudfoot pleaded guilty to stealing household items, electrical goods and toiletries from Farmfoods in the Telford Retail Park on June 1, 2023.

On August 7, 2023 he broke into the Charleston Post Office and the nearby Taste of China takeaway and stole various goods including meat.

His crime spree came to an end at Go Outdoors, again in the Telford Retail Park, when he stole a jacket on September 24, 2023 and behaved in an aggressive manner in the store.
