Five young Londoners have appeared in court after they were allegedly involved in a robbery at a shop in Irvine’s Bridgegate.

Bebe Cracuin, aged 28, Florian Veriga, aged 23, Viorel Stan, 19, and two 17-year-olds, who can’t be named for legal reasons, appeared in private at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court on Wednesday, November 14.

They were committed for further examination and remanded in custody.

They will return to the same court on Wednesday, November 21 for a full committal hearing ahead of trial.
