AN armed robber raided two bookmakers within a two hour period, a court was told.
Michael McLean, 36, admitted robbing Ladbrokes in Saltmarket, by brandishing a shovel at an employee and making off with Pounds 405 on April 7.
He also admitted intent to rob William King and Sons Bookmakers by threatening an employee. Before the first robbery McLean had placed 30 to 40 bets on horse and dog races.
Judge Lord Bracadale deferred sentence on McLean, of Kerrycroy Avenue, Glasgow, until next month.
