A NEILSTON man is facing trial accused of a string of theft and road traffic charges.

Mark Doyle, of McDonald Place, is said to have stolen fuel from Barrhead Service Station, in Glasgow Road, Barrhead, on February 8 this year.

He is further said to have attempted to pervert the course of justice by altering the registration plate and also denies driving without insurance.

Prosecutors claim he also stole a quantity of perfume from Boots in Main Street, Barrhead, on February 27 and fraudulently used a different registration plate on a vehicle.

The same day, 47-year-old Doyle is said to have driven a vehicle he did not have a valid licence for, while uninsured to do so.

Also that ay, he is alleged to have again stolen fuel from Barrhead Service Station and driven a vehicle without permission.

On March 28 this year, Doyle is alleged to have stolen goods from Boots at The Avenue shopping mall, in Newton Mearns.

The final charge states that, on April 29, he stole electric razors from Boots in Barrhead.

When the case called at Paisley Sheriff Court and it emerged Doyle is pleading not guilty to the 11 charges he faces, a pre-trial hearing was scheduled for December, with a trial planned for January.
