Gibson remanded in custody

SENTENCE on a Shetland man was deferred for three weeks after he pled guilty to five charges when he appeared from custody before Lerwick Sheriff Court, on Tuesday.

John Wood Gibson, described as a prisoner in Aberdeen, admitted attempting to break in to Grantfield Garage on 4 April and breaking in to council offices at Hayfield and stealing a memory stick on 5 April.

The 33 year old also admitted breaching the peace at the Gilbert Bain Hospital, in Lerwick, struggling violently with police officers in the hospital’s carpark, and making threats to police officers including that he was hepatitis C positive and would spit at them, that he would burn their wives and children, and that he would punch their wives and children should he meet them in public, all on 5 April.

Gibson was remanded in custody and is due to re-appear for sentencing on 5 May.
