A young Irvine man has appeared in court facing allegations of stealing a car and committing several road traffic offences while in possession of a controlled drug. 

Connor Greenan, 21, appeared in private at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court on Tuesday, November 20, where he faced six charges against him. 

Greenan entered no plea to alleged car theft, dangerous driving, driving without a license, driving without insurance, failing to stop for police officers and possession of a controlled drug. 

The case was continued for further examination and Greenan was remanded in custody. 

He will return to the same court at a later date.
