TWO men are facing jail after they admitted stealing 30 ducks from a farm.

Benjamin Murray and Brandon Robb took the birds from Meikle Balquhomie Farm, in Leslie, near Glenrothes, between July 29 and August 1 last year.

They had originally been accused of stealing 90 ducks but prosecutors yesterday accepted a guilty plea to stealing a third of that amount. A further allegation they had killed 90 ducks was dropped by prosecutors, who also accepted not guilty pleas to disabling and damaging snares and fencing.
