STEALING a set of headphones from a mobile phone shop in Galashiels has resulted in a 120-days jail sentence for a 33-year-old man.

David Wright snatched the headphones, valued at £80, and walked out of the O2 Shop in Channel Street on December 20.

But he was challenged by a staff member who managed to retrieve the equipment.

Selkirk Sheriff Court was told that Wright of Baxters Gate, Tranent, was currently serving a prison sentence for another matter.

Sheriff Peter Paterson said the 120-days sentence should run consecutively when the other jail term expires.
