An arrest warrant was issued for a man said to have stolen six mobile phones from courier firm DPD.

Kyle Brace, 26, of Athelstan Road, Malmesbury, was working for the company in Royal Wootton Bassett when he is accused of stealing the phones – worth more than £4,800 – in November 2019.

He is also said to have stolen items from Tesco in Chippenham in March.

Brace had been due before Swindon Magistrates’ Court on Monday, November 23, to answer charges of theft by an employee and shoplifting.

When he did not show up, District Judge Joanna Dickens issued a warrant for his arrest.
