Denies disposal bid to foil cops
A Rutherglen man denies attempting to dispose of brown powder to obstruct police officers.
Joseph Hamilton, 49, is claimed to have intentionally got rid of the substance at Longstone Place, Glasgow, on January 2.
The Kingsbridge Drive resident, who was on bail at the time of the alleged incident, was also charged with having class A drug diamorphine on his person.
Hamilton denied the charges at Glasgow Sheriff Court and is due to return for a trial on August 17.
