Men admit breaking into sheltered homes

TWO Lithuanian men have been warned they could face jail after pleading guilty to breaking into two sheltered homes in Lerwick over the weekend.

Appearing from custody at Lerwick Sheriff Court on Monday, 30 year old Nerijas Kalkauskas, of 29 Cheyne Crescent, Lerwick admitted stealing a wallet containing £275 from a house occupied by an 85 year old man in the town’s Burgh Road on Sunday.

Kalkauskas and his 27 year old friend Tomas Levandacius, of 24 King Harald Street, Lerwick, also admitted stealing a TV and a watch from a sheltered house a few doors away.

Sheriff Graeme Napier deferred sentence for reports and released both men on bail until 15 June, warning them that they could be sent to prison for their actions.
