A man has appeared in court accused of robbing a north-east convenience store with a firearm.
Mark Junor, 46, appeared at Peterhead Sheriff Court in connection with the armed robbery of a McColl’s store in Ellon.
Appearing privately at the behind-closed-doors hearing, he made no plea and was committed for further examination.
Remanded behind bars
Junor, who gave an address in Ellon, was remanded in custody and will appear in the dock again at a later date.
The incident happened at about 9.50pm on Thursday, February 17, when staff were preparing to close up.
He was charged under the Firearms Amendment Act of having a firearm or imitation firearm at the time of the alleged robbery.
Speaking after Junor was charged, Detective Inspector Martyn Thomson said: “Thankfully incidents like this remain extremely rare in the north-east and I’d like to thank the public for their assistance with this investigation.”
