A SHOPLIFTER was so high on an overdose of Valium that he believed he had become "The Invisible Man" and could not be seen as he stole items from the shelves of a local store.
But shop staff in the TK Maxx store at the Linwood Retail Park in Paisley were watching Robert Crawford closely as he took jewellery and toiletries without paying.
And after he was nabbed and handed over to police on July 24, Crawford, 23, admitted committing the offence when he appeared in custody at Paisley Sheriff Court.
Crawford, of Ferguslie Park Avenue, Paisley, was remanded further after Sheriff Desmond Leslie was told the accused was on probation and was under regular review by Sheriff Mairi Mactaggart, whom he was due to appear before on August 13 as part of the procedure.
Explaining the offence, the solicitor said: “He took quantities of Valium on the day in question and believed he was invisible.”
