THREE men appeared in private from custody at Lerwick Sheriff Court on Monday charged with drug offences.
Nineteen-year-old Larri Ian Goodlad, 29-year old Scott Henry, both from Lerwick, and 51-year old Campbell Howie MacDiarmid, from Devon, made no plea or declaration.
MacDiarmid was also charged with road traffic offences, carrying an object with a blade in a public place and attempting to pervert the course of justice.
They were all committed for further examination. MacDiarmid and Goodlad were remanded in custody and are both due to appear before the court again on 1 December. Henry was released on bail.
Also in private and from custody appeared 42-year old Ian Lloyd Smith charged with breaching bail conditions.
Smith, also from Devon, had been released on bail on Friday after facing drug offences himself.
On Monday, he made no plea or declaration, was committed for further examination and remanded in custody.
Monday’s court appearances followed news that police in Shetland had seized class A and B drugs and had arrested three men over the weekend.
