Five men will stand trial next year accused of stealing a cash machine containing almost £16,000 from a shop in Carnoustie.

The group are accused of plotting together before allegedly stealing the machine from a Co-Operative store in Barry Street in February.

Prosecutors claim a hole was cut in shutters of the shop before a rope was tied around the cash machine.

It is alleged a Land Rover vehicle was used to drag the ATM from the store.

Anthony Conroy (29), Andrew White (27), Nanu Miah (27), Robin Vaughan (43) and Carl Cavanagh (33) faced a conspiracy charge during a hearing at the High Court in Glasgow.

Judge Lady Rae set a trial due to begin in January.

The case could last up to three weeks.
