Duo jailed after stealing from vulnerable pensioner

A MAN and woman from Oban were sentenced to 12 months imprisonment each for breaking into the home of a vulnerable pensioner who had been given only months to live.

‘I see no reason in differentiating between you,’ said Sheriff Patrick Hughes when he jailed Sharon Isobell MacAllister, of 4b Sinclair Drive, and Russell MacLennan, of 18a Dalintart Drive, on Friday.

Both had admitted breaking into the flat then occupied by the victim, now deceased, at 2 Sinclair Drive, and stealing a cash box containing £180, two wallets, a bank card and a Tesco clubcard. This happened on August 31 or September 1, 2016.
