Yesterday, Paisley Sheriff Court heard Ronay was soon stopped and quizzed by sharp-eyed cop PC Iain McLellan, who spotted him wandering through the town centre with a carrier bag containing the device and its charger. Ronay first claimed he had food and drink in the bag, but when asked to show its contents, he offered excuses saying the laptop belonged to two different people, and it was taken from him by PC McLellan.

The court also heard Ronay was spotted on CCTV entering the building and wandering around inside, trying doors, until he swiped the device from the female robing room and staggered out of the building. Procurator fiscal depute Frankie Morgan told how an alarm was set off in the court at around 1pm on Saturday, July 31 when Morgan crept in.
