Natasha Teven, 37, appeared at Falkirk Sheriff Court on Thursday having pleaded guilty to stealing £600 worth of cosmetics from Well Pharmacy, Carron Centre, Carronshore on November 30, 2020.

She also admitted strealing goods from Boots, South Street, Bo’ness on November 12.

At an earlier court appearance it was stated Teven was trying to cope with her 71-year-old mother’s failing health as well as trying to look after herself and her own problems.

On that date, Simon Hutchison, defence solicitor, said: “She has had a serious heroin problem for many years.”

Sheriff Craig Harris noted Teven had made no progress while on her drug treatment and testing order.

He said: “The only way to remove drugs from you is to remove you from the drugs.”

He sentenced Teven, 113 North Street, Bo’ness, to 170 days in prison.
