Date set for cash and mobile phone theft trial

Have your say

Dunbar man Mark Brown will stand trial next year accused of stealing from a home in the town.

Brown, of Wingate Crescent, failed to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Tuesday but a not guilty plea was lodged and the case was adjourned in his absence.

Brown, 43, is alleged to have taken a quantity of cash and a mobile phone during the alleged raid on a property in the town’s High Street on June 18 this year.

A new trial date has been set down for April 20 next year.
