Newton Stewart woman guilty of £110,000 garage fraud

A woman who conned a garage firm out of £110,000 has been warned she could be facing a prison sentence.

Wanda Campbell, 43, of Newton Stewart, was found guilty of acting with others to take the money from James Haugh Castle Douglas.

At Dumfries Sheriff Court, she had denied committing the offence between March 2012 and October 2013.

However, she was unanimously found guilty by a jury at the end of a seven-day trial.

Sheriff Scott Pattison told Campbell that she had been found guilty of a serious crime which had had an impact on individuals and a business.

He deferred sentence to 31 October for background reports and added: "It would not be fair of me if I did not tell you that it could be a prison sentence."
