Time runs out for Langlees shoplifter to appear at court
A chancer was given more time to appear at court on Thursday but still failed to show.
Sheriff Derek Livingston said he would wait another five minutes for Christopher Roy (35), who told his defence solicitor he was “on his way”.
Roy, 9 Tay Street, Langlees, previously pleaded guilty to theft at The Range, Falkirk Central Retail park, on February 8.
In the end Sheriff Livingston waited 20 minutes for Roy – who still failed to turn up – and then granted a warrant for his arrest.
