A man has denied claims he made off with a haul of goods from a city centre restaurant.
Ross Henderson, 36, of Deveron Crescent, allegedly stole an iPod, wallets containing cards and £80 cash from Tony Macaroni on Whitehall Street on March 24 last year.
He is further charged with stealing a watch and a bottle of aftershave from the venue.
Henderson allegedly pretended to an employee at Tesco on Nethergate that he was the lawful holder of a bank card before obtaining £12.50 worth of goods.
The following day, he allegedly committed the same offence at Spar in Orleans Place for goods worth £7.90.
Henderson did not appear in the dock of Dundee Sheriff Court to answer the charges but a plea of not guilty was tendered on his behalf by solicitor Jim Caird. A trial was fixed for June 6 by Sheriff Jillian Martin-Brown with an intermediate diet on May 21.
