Rabbit thief is jailed

Reported in the Peeblesshire news, 13 May 2011 - Full story

A drunken youth who stole a pet bunny from a children's nursery during a rabbit shooting expedition has been jailed.

Stephen McLeod left youngsters in tears and most of Peebles outraged after Crunchie disappeared - and has never been found.

The 19-year-old's partner in crime Craig Robertson, 20, was given 18 months probation.

The pair were armed with an air rifle on October 13 when they smashed up the rabbit hutch at Kingsmeadows Children's Nursery.

McLeod was jailed for a total of seven months at Selkirk Sheriff Court this week after admitting stealing the rabbit.
