A HELENSBURGH teenager has been locked up for 18 months for a string of offences and repeatedly breaking bail orders.

Connor McCabe, 19, of Henry Bell Street, appeared at Dumbarton Sheriff Court earlier this month for sentencing after previously admitting the offences.

On July 26, 2020, at Charlotte Street, East King Street and elsewhere, McCabe assaulted a man, put his hand on his shoulder, repeatedly demanded money from him, repeatedly threatened him with violence, demanded he go to a cash machine and withdraw money and robbed him of £130.

He was released on bail the next day but on August 11, in Campbell Street and Queen Street, McCabe wilfully set fire to a quantity of bins and destroyed them.

There were two more bail orders on April 12, 2021 and May 24. Then on June 3 this year, he was granted bail with a special condition not to contact or approach a woman and to stay at home between 7pm and 7am each day.

Within weeks, on June 22, in his home street, he was found outwith his home during curfew hours.

McCabe appeared before Sheriff Maxwell Hendry and was locked up for a total of 18 months for the three offences. He will also have an extra six months of supervised release when he is eventually free from Polmont Young Offenders Institution.
