Two men appeared in court yesterday in connection with a series of break-ins in the Highlands – including at a car dealership in Inverness.
Stewart Burns, 35, and Andrew Gardiner, 34, face a number of offences, including charges of theft by housebreaking, housebreaking with intent to steal, and attempted housebreaking with intent to steal.
The pair, whose addresses were given as Tayside, appeared on petition in private at Inverness Sheriff Court.
Burns made no plea and was remanded in custody for further examination. He will appear in court again within the next week.
Gardiner also made no plea but was granted bail pending further examination.
A 14-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, did not appear and has been referred to the Scottish Children’s Reporter.
They were charged in connection with break-ins at a car dealership on Millburn Road in Inverness and further commercial premises in North Kessock, Tomatin and Dalwhinnie.
