Cairneyhill Burglar

DUNDEE EVENING POST FRIDAY 9 DECEMBER 1904

LENIENCE TO DUNFERMLINE BURGLAR

Some amusement was raised in Dunfermline Sheriff Court today, when an apparently half-witted labourer, George Erskine, North Pitdinnie, Cairneyhill, was charged with breaking into a house lately occupied by himself in Cairneyhill, belonging to Alexander Erskine, railway surfaceman. He admitted the charge, and stated to the Sheriff that he never broke the law before.

His Lordship ordered him to find caution of £1 for six months’ good behaviour, or six days’ imprisonment.
