A 20-year-old man had denied that he stole a six pack of Fanta, worth £1.70, from a store in Banbridge.
Scott Mayne, Barban Heights, Dromore, was accused of the theft when he appeared last Thursday at Banbridge Magistrates Court.
Accepting the jurisdiction of the magistrates’ court he pleaded not guilty when the charge was put to him.
The charges alleges that on November 5 last year he stole a six pack of Fanta, valued at £1.70, from Eurospar, Scarva Street, Banbridge.
The case was adjourned for a period of two weeks so that a date could be set for a contested hearing.
