Court / Three men charged after police recover drugs at Aberdeen ferry terminal bound for Northern Isles

THREE men appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court on Friday on drugs charges after £4,600 worth of cocaine and cannabis bound for Shetland and Orkney was recovered at the city’s ferry terminal.

The drugs were seized by police at Aberdeen Ferry Terminal on Thursday.

Thirty nine year old William Christie, Robert McLean, 27, and Charles Townsley, 30, who are all from Kilmarnock, appeared in court in private on Friday on drugs supply charges.

McLean and Townsley both faced three charges each relating to drugs supply, while Christie was charged once.

Townsley was also charged with having an article with a blade or a point in a public place, while Christie faced a charge of breach of bail.

All three men made no plea and had their case continued for further examination. They were remanded in custody and are expected to reappear at some point this week.
