A man accused of damaging several cars and a motorbike after deliberately starting fires in Dundee City Centre has been remanded in custody.
Christopher Adam of Tulloch Court, Hilltown, appeared in private before Sheriff Alastair Carmichael on a petition alleging five charges in total including wilful fire-raising, vandalism and theft by breaking into a car.
Adam, 32, is alleged to have, on July 27, at Trades Lane, forcing open a lockfast motor car and stealing a television set.
He is further alleged to have, on the same date at the Brassica restaurant in Shore Terrace in Dundee, wilfully or recklessly destroyed or damaged the property by repeatedly throwing a traffic cone at the windows, causing them damage.
Prosecutors further allege that Adam wilfully set fire to a menu there and the fire took effect, causing damage to the table it was on, at the same place on the same date; and again on the same date, at Trades Lane, wilfully set fire to a car and it took effect and caused extensive damage and then spread to two adjacent motor cars, causing damage to them; and again on the same date, at Allan Lane, wilfully set fire to tarpaulin and the fire took effect, causing damage to the motorcycle it was covering.
All of these offences were committed while he was on bail, prosecutors allege.
He made no plea during his brief appearance at Dundee Sheriff Court and was remanded in custody while the case was continued for further examination.
Adam is expected to appear at court again next week to be fully committed for trial.
