THREE people, including a father and son, will go on trial later this month after they denied alleged shoplifting at a Keswick supermarket.
Garry Vevers, 49, Tanya Jacques, 34, and 18-year-old Todd Vevers appeared together in the dock at Carlisle Crown Court.
All three defendants – father and son Garry and Todd Vevers, and Garry’s partner, Tanya, pleaded not guilty to two charges which they jointly face.
These are the alleged theft of products from the Booths food, wine and grocery store at Tithebarn Street in Keswick on two separate dates late last year.
The trio stand accused of stealing £469.65 worth of items on November 18, and also goods valued £359.70 six days later, on November 24.
A timetable for the progression of the case was outlined by prosecutor Alaric Walmsley.
Vevers, Jacques and Vevers were told they are due to stand trial in front of a jury at the crown court in the week of November 26.
It is estimated that hearing will last two to three days.
In the meantime, Judge Andrew Jefferies QC granted bail to Garry Vevers, of Birkby, Maryport; Tanya Jacques, of Boyd Street, Maryport; and Todd Vevers, of Main Street, Distington, Workington.
