Thief robs priest of alcohol collection
A thief broke into the home of one of Scotland's leading Catholic clergymen and stole his collection of valuable whisky and cognac.
Career criminal Simon Winks, 36, has been warned he faces a lengthy spell in prison after robbing the Rt Rev Monsignor Hugh McInally, 80, at his Perthshire home.
Fiscal depute Carol Whyte told Perth Sheriff Court that witnesses saw Winks and another man carrying a holdall. A dog walker noticed damage to the Monsignor's door and called the police.
