Three charged with supplying cocaine on site of former pub
Police said drugs worth £84,500 involved at Crieff Road in Perth
Three men appeared in court yesterday charged with supplying cocaine – said to be worth £84,500 – on the site of a former Perth pub.
Dale Addley, 42, of Glenogle Crescent, Perth, Kenneth Pitcaithly, 39, of Junction Road, Kinross, and James Kerr, 40, of Argyll Road, Perth, all faced a charge of supplying the class A drug at a building site at 208 Crieff Road, Perth, on Thursday.
All three men appeared in private before Sheriff Christopher Shed at Perth and made no plea or declaration.
They were all committed for further examination but granted bail.
The police previously said the drugs were worth £84,500.
The site in question was previously home to the 208 pub, which became a mecca for football supporters due to its location opposite St Johnstone’s ground, McDiarmid Park.
It closed its doors in November 2016 and was demolished last year to make way for 24 two-bedroom council flats.
The new housing development in
Crieff Road comprises the former site of the 208 pub along with a redundant local authority lock-up site.
The latter was also demolished last year.
The new flats are expected to be completed by February next year.
