A MAN has been imprisoned for nine months after admitting behaving in a threatening and abusive manner at a Lerwick chemist and having a “length of sharpened metal” in his possession.
Kasim Javed, 31, address given as Grampian Prison, admitted the offence which took place on 22 June this year at Laing’s Pharmacy in Kantersted Road.
Javed admitted acting in a threatening and abusive manner to two men in the chemist and behaving aggressively towards one of them, who he threatened with violence.
Appearing from custody, he also pleaded guilty to displaying a length of sharpened metal which he had partially concealed in his clothes, which formed part of the same charge.
Sheriff Ian Cruickshank sentenced Javed to nine months in prison which was back dated to 24 June when he was taken into custody.
