A Kilgetty man has denied 22 charges of theft totalling more than £5,000.

Gary Michael Bourne, of The Meadows, pleaded not guilty to all charges of theft from a person when he appeared before Haverfordwest magistrates on Tuesday, April 10.

The offences are alleged to have taken place in Rochdale, New Hedges and Kilgetty, Kidderminster, Stourport, Tenby and Saundersfoot, between January 30 and February 13, and involved amounts ranging from £15 to £500.

Magistrates declined jurisdiction and Bourne, 52, will next appear at Swansea crown court on May 11.

He was released on unconditional bail.
