Cannabis curfew

NINETEEN year old Lerwick man Kyle Swannie has been placed under a night time curfew after admitting being concerned in the supply of cannabis.

At Lerwick Sheriff Court on Wednesday, Swannie admitted dealing the drug from his home 24A Pitt Lane on 22 May.

Procurator fiscal Duncan Mackenzie said police recovered cannabis worth £100 from the property and found a phone with text messages to known drug users, which showed he was operating a “commercial supply within a social network”.

The teenager also admitted shouting, swearing and behaving aggressively at his home address on 29 August, having previously admitted resisting arrest and struggling violently with three police officers at his address on the same day.

Defence agent Tommy Allan insisted his client’s life is was moving in the “right direction” and encouraged the court not to “interfere” with that process.

Sheriff Philip Mann placed Swannie on a six month curfew from 9pm to 7am, ordering him to carry out 120 hours of unpaid work and placing him under supervision for the next 18 months.
