Break-in ends in court

JAYDE Alyse Frankel and her friends decided to break into a vacant house in Scarness because they were looking for somewhere to smoke cannabis, a court was told.

Neighbouring residents heard noises coming from inside the vacant house and contacted police, who found the intruders and a number of drug utensils when they arrived.
