Man in court over Dumfries Infirmary laughing gas theft

Dumfries Sheriff Court

A man has appeared in court following the theft of nitrous oxide cylinders from Dumfries Infirmary.

Stewart Pettigrew, 31, from Dumfries, appeared in private before Sheriff Brian Mohan on a charge of theft.

He was on a petition alleging the charge and no plea or declaration was made. He was remanded in custody.

A number of cylinders of nitrous oxide cylinders - commonly known as laughing gas - were taken from a store at the hospital earlier this month.
