Xbox thief gets community work
A man was sentenced to 120 hours' community work for stealing an Xbox and computer from Hamilton's Transfer Refuse Station.
Andrew Paul Tindlay, 32, appeared in the Hamilton District Court after the break-in earlier this year.
Tindlay admitted cutting a hole in a fence to steal the property. He said he had pliers on him for protection when he was found by police.
Judge Connell accepted that Tindlay didn't have a history of burglary.
As he left the dock, the Judge told him, "Don't come back."
