A MAN has been jailed for stealing various items from a house in Ayr.

Derek Gold, 45, currently prisoner of Kilmarnock prison will serve 30 months behind bars.

The thief stole a jacket, a rucksack containing a laptop, money and jewellery from a house on Craigie Avenue on February 24.

Gold also snatched watches, sunglasses and a driving licence from his female victim.

Sheriff John Montgomery sentenced him to 30 months, discounted from 40 when he appeared at Ayr Sheriff Court last week.
