Christopher Roy (35), 9 Tay Street, Langlees, had previously admitted stealing beauty products from Falkirk Central Retail Park’s Range shop on February 8.

Defence solicitor Gordon Addison told the court he had no explanation for Roy’s non appearance, but did say he previously suffered from pneumonia.

Sheriff Richard MacFarlane continued the case for two weeks to April 1 for Roy’s personal appearance.
