Buccleuch Street fraudster convicted

Robert Kelbie of a Buccleuch Street address pled guilty to £145,000 of mortgage frauds earlier this week.  He now faces a jail sentence and confiscation of his assets under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

There is a bit of a back story, though much still remains unclear. For one thing Mr Kelbie was shot in the back in an unsolved crime in Newcraighall in 2010.

For more details of this and other background see this article.  A google search on Robert Kelbie reveals further background information.
