A Largs man has admitted stealing a computer from a shop in the town centre.

Mark Leslie McGugan, 47, of St Columba Court, pleaded guilty to the theft from Largs Computers on December 19 last year. 

His lawyer told Kilmarnock Sheriff Court: "He has a history of addiction, and I believe reports would be beneficial in this matter."

The diet on May 9 was adjourned for Criminal Justice Social Work Reports, with his bail continued.
