A TEENAGER has denied charges of fraud and breaking into locked cars.

Steven Brolly, 18, pleaded not guilty to a total of five offences at Alloa Sheriff Court on Thursday, May 2.

He is alleged to have broken into two vehicles at Turret Court in Alloa, stealing a bank card from one, and attempting to steal from the other.

He also faces three allegations of fraud.

One of the charges states that he tried to use a bank card belonging to someone else to obtain goods worth £174.99 from JJB Online.

The other two charges allege that he used the same card to attempt to purchase goods from two different shops in Sauchie.

The value of the goods he allegedly tried to purchase were £10.50 in one store, and £1.39 in the other.

All the offences are said to have taken place on January 15, while Brolly acted with another individual – who was not present when the case called on Thursday.

Prosecutor Susannah Hutchison entered a motion from the Crown to have Brolly placed on a curfew as part of any bail conditions.

However, that was rejected by Sheriff David Mackie.

The case will go to trial on August 6, with an intermediate diet fixed for July 22.

Brolly, of Mull Court in Alloa, was then released on bail.
