Aberdeen armed robber snared through forensic evidence in car

Police at the scene

An Aberdeen armed robber left his DNA and fingerprints on the getaway vehicle, a court has heard.

Forensic evidence linking Jay Jay Kirton, 24, to the crime was found on the steering wheel and gear stick.

Kirkton and Richard Cameron, 30, admitted the robbery using knives at DSG Stores, in Bankhead Road, in June last year.

Kirkton also pleaded guilty to stealing the car involved. Sentence at the High Court in Edinburgh was deferred.

The court had heard money and cigarettes were stolen.
