Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

A teenager who al­legedly threw away an ec­stasy tablet when ap­proached by po­lice of­fi­cers has been charged with three of­fences.

The 17-year-old was on Ar­den­craig Road in Castlemilk on April 2, 2016, when he is said to have thrown a small bag con­tain­ing a cap­sule tablet on the ground.

He has since been charged with pos­ses­sion of a class A drug and ob­struct­ing po­lice of­fi­cers in the line of duty.

A third charge alleges the youth was also drink­ing al­co­hol in a pub­lic place, pro­hib­ited by Glas­gow City Coun­cil by­laws.

He will re­turn to stand trial on March 5.
