Two men have been sentenced for a robbery at a filling station in Bothwell Street, Dunfermline, in December 2020.

Kieran Pearson, 28, and Craig Pritchard, 42, had admitted their involvement at an earlier hearing at the High Court in Edinburgh. Pearson had also admitted an attempted robbery at a store in Townhill Road, Dunfermline, in August 2020.

Today, Wednesday 12, May, at the High Court in Edinburgh, Pearson was sentenced to five years and four months and Pritchard to four years.

Detective Inspector Karen Muirhead, of Dunfermline Police Station, said: “It is fortunate that no one was seriously injured during these incidents but in both cases staff were threatened and left extremely shaken by what happened.

“There is no place for this kind of violence in our society. I would like to commend the bravery of the people who were threatened with weapons during these incidents.”

“I would also like to thank the local communities for their assistance in our investigations of both incidents. This kind of behaviour will not be tolerated and we will continue to do everything that we can to bring those responsible for such crimes before the court.”
