POLICE have been ordered to track down a serial thief who helped herself to make-up.

On Thursday at Alloa Sheriff Court, 38-year-old Kathleen Macdonald failed to show for sentencing.

The accused, of Baingle Crescent in Tullibody, was due to be punished for stealing clothes from Asda and Kicks for Kids, both in Falkirk, on March 25 last year.

While out on bail, Macdonald then stole a quantity of household goods, cosmetics and clothes from Alloa's Tesco store on June 24, 2016.

Sheriff Christopher Shead granted a non-appearance warrant.
