Accused’s lawyers call for CCTV footage

Have your say

A MAN accused of masked robbery of a jewellery shop has lodged a special defence of incrimination.

David Scott, of Gracemount Drive, denies carrying out the raid in Eyemouth, in the Scottish Borders, two-and-a-half years ago.

Scott, 27, is due to face a jury trial at Selkirk Sheriff Court on January 28, but his lawyers are requesting CCTV footage from Eyemouth town centre they believe could help his case. It is in the possession of the police.

He denies, while acting with others, assaulting three people, brandishing a hammer and robbing them of jewellery at Chapel Antiques, High Street, Eyemouth, on July 22, 2010.

Scott pleads not guilty to assaulting a 76-year-old woman at Church Street, Eyemouth, and demanding her car keys and assaulting another woman with intent to steal her car.

He also denies assaulting two people at Victoria Road, Eyemouth, demanding that the driver get out of the car with intent to steal it.
