Man remanded over alleged break-in at Lerwick chemists

A FORTY three year old man who denies breaking into a Lerwick chemist and stealing sedative tablets has been remanded in custody for three weeks.

Martin MacDonald, of Robertson Lane, Lerwick, appeared in court on Monday afternoon to plead not guilty to the break-in at A.L. Laing’s chemist on the town’s Commercial Street on Saturday (15 October).

He is alleged to have stolen a quantity of tablets of the sedative lorazepam.

MacDonald is also accused of resisting, obstructing or hindering two police constables in the execution of their duty and struggling violently with them on Lerwick’s Clickimin Road later the same day.

A trial date was fixed for 10 November. Honorary sheriff Willie Shannon refused an application for bail and remanded MacDonald in custody in the meantime.
