Thief Apologises For ‘Deplorable Behaviour’ After Stealing From Restaurant<span class="wtr-time-wrap after-title"><span class="wtr-time-number">1</span> min read</span>


A thief has apologised for their “deplorable behaviour” after stealing a vegetable delivery from outside a restaurant owned by a MasterChef winner.

The culprit wrote a letter of apology and enclosed £30 to cover the cost of the pinched goods after bosses at Sandbanks Brasserie in Broughty Ferry posted on social media they had CCTV of the incident which showed the person and their car.

The Dundee restaurant is run by Jamie Scott, who won MasterChef: The Professionals in 2014, and his wife, Kelly.

In a Facebook post highlighting the overnight theft on 30 December, the Scotts issued a kind response to the incident.

They said: “Please if you are in need contact us directly, no questions asked and we will provide a hot meal at the very least. However please don’t take our orders.

“It’s a hard time for many, some more than others which is heartbreaking to see.”

In an update, the couple revealed the thief had come forward with a letter of “sincere apology” and £30 to cover the cost of their loss.

The culprit gave a “personal and heartfelt promise” that there would be no further repeat of their “deplorable behaviour”.
