A John­stone cou­ple are fac­ing trial ac­cused of deal­ing drugs from their home in the town.

Alistair Harvie and De­bra Brown are said to have dealt Am­phet­a­mine, a class B drug more com­monly known as speed, from their Rank­ine Street house.

Prose­cu­tors claim they were in pos­ses­sion of the drug “with in­tent to sup­ply it to an­other or oth­ers.”

Harvie, 41, and Brown, 35, are also said to have been in pos­ses­sion of two other drugs - cannabis and eti­zo­lam, a for­mer le­gal high which is of­ten sold as val­ium.

It’s claimed they had the banned sub­stances at their home on Au­gust 24 last year.

Nei­ther Harvie nor Brown were present when the case against them called for the first time at Pais­ley Sher­iff Court this week.

Not guilty pleas were en­tered on their be­half and Sher­iff Moira MacKen­zie ad­journed the case un­til Novem­ber for a pre-trial hear­ing to take place.

A trial has been set for De­cem­ber.
