AN ARDROSSAN man has admitted to breaking into an industrial unit in Irvine with intent to steal.

Andrew Robb, 21, of Glasgow Street, appeared at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court last week. He pleaded guilty to one charge of housebreaking with intent to steal.

Robb broke into the unit occupied by Scottish Wool Growers in North Newmoor Industrial Estate on November 5 of last year.

Sentence was deferred for reports until March 27. Robb was bailed and will return to the court for sentencing on that date.
