Two men have been charged with robbing houses in Girvan.
Paul Barclay, 37, and Ross Nawarauckas, 31, both face four charges of theft by housebreaking.
They will spend the festive season behind bars after they were refused bail at Ayr Sheriff Court.
It’s alleged that the thefts all took place within five days between December 11 and December 16.
Both men have been charged with breaking into a home on Motehill Road and stealing a large quantity of jewellery and two wrist watches on December 11.
On the same day, Barclay is claimed to have been found in the grounds of a house on North Park Avenue without permission.
Barclay and Nawarauckas are charged with stealing jewellery, a Pulsar watch and around £1200 in cash from a property in Elder Avenue on December 13.
And on December 15, they are both alleged to have taken a TV/DVD combi player, a quantity of antique and classic coins, a blu-ray player, a laptop, a digital video camera, jewellery, an iPod nano, a PSP games console plus the charger and around £80 from a house in Roxburgh Road.
They are accused of breaking in to a home on Willow Drive and stealing a Playstation console, a quantity of jewellery, a holdall and £25 in cash on December 16.
Both men have also been charged with possession of methadone, and Barclay is also alleged to have had 310 diazepam tablets on December 17.
Barclay, listed as having no fixed abode, and Nawarauckas, of Kerr Court, Girvan, pleaded not guilty when they appeared from custody on December 19.
John Gallacher, who defended both men, submitted an application for bail with a supervision requirement and a curfew.
But Sheriff John Montgomery refused bail and they were remanded into custody until their next appearance in January.
