Richard Fleming, from London, made a second appearance in private at Perth Sheriff Court on Tuesday.

He is accused of assault and robbery, assault, two charges of theft by housebreaking, a charge of being in a building with intent to commit theft and a charge under the Firearms Act.

He made no plea and was remanded in custody

Detectives previously released CCTV images of a second suspect, who they believe has links to the London area, at a train station and a branch of WH Smith.
