The case of two men charged in relation to the handling of stolen Mercedes vehicles has been adjourned so that evidence can be provided to the defence and appropriate interpreters arranged.
Maksim Filiusin, 35, of Oxford Street, Grantham is charged with one count of handling the stolen Mercedes Sprinters, while Irmantas Urbonas, 37, of Belton Avenue, Grantham, faces one count of attempting to handle the stolen vans.
Both matters date back to March 1 of last year, but the two men were only recently charged on June 23.
Representing Mr Urbonas, Mr Middleton described the case as ‘labyrinthine’ and requested an adjournment so that more evidence could be provided by the CPS.
The case was also unable to proceed because no appropriate interpreters were available.

WORRIED employees of languages company Capita fear they will lose their jobs if proposals to relocate the business to Poland go ahead.
The language and translation services business, based in Huddersfield Road, Delph, has started a four-week consultation period that has left workers worried for their future.
A Capita Translation and Interpreting spokesman said expanding the use of the company’s centre in Krakow, Poland could result in up to 30 local jobs being subject to redundancy.
“We hope some employees will be able to find suitable redeployment opportunities within Capita,” he said. Capita has 165 British staff and 210 worldwide and the proposals will not close the Delph centre.
The firm supplies translators for the justice system through government-funded contracts.
The mother of a 24-year-old Oldham man, who has worked at Capita for over two years, has written to Business Secretary Vince Cable to express her disgust.
