Ordered to pay back friend

A LERWICK man who admitted stealing £300 from a friend was ordered to pay the money back, at the town’s sheriff court yesterday (Wednesday).

David Miazek, of 7 Breiwick Road, was arrested this week after failing to appear in court on an undertaking last October.

Appearing from custody, Miazek yesterday admitted he had promised to look after the money for a friend on 9 October at his home and failed to return the cash.

The court heard that the 27 year old had already paid back £150 and honorary sheriff Arnold Duncan imposed a compensation order to cover the rest of the missing money.
