A WOMAN has appeared in court following two suspected armed robberies on shops in Hawick.
Claire Condie, 21, was arrested after police said a woman threatened staff with a knife at The Little Shop and Londis in Hawick on Tuesday of last week.
Officers issued descriptions of a woman and confirmed that cash, alcohol and cigarettes were stolen from both shops.
Condie, from Hawick, appeared from custody at Jedburgh Sheriff Court on Christmas Eve. She faces two counts of assault and robbery at the stores. She made no plea or declaration during a private appearance and was remanded in custody pending another appearance this week.
