Norman Gunn, 34, is to stand trial over claims of housebreaking.
Prosecutors allege that on August 19 2017, Gunn broke into a property on Culloden Crescent in Arbroath with intent to steal.
Gunn, of Brechin Road, Arbroath, had a plea of not guilty to the single charge on indictment tendered on his behalf by solictor Grant Bruce.
As a result, Sheriff Alastair Carmichael fixed a trial for May 10.
Gunn was remanded meantime.
