Perthshire Advertiser - - NEWS - Court re­porter

War­rants were is­sued for the ar­rest of two men when they failed to ap­pear sep­a­rately on in­dict­ments at Perth Sher­iff Court this week on knife charges.

Twenty-nine-year-old Dayne Cairns, of Camp­sie Road, is charged with hav­ing a lock knife in his posses­sion in the city’s St Catherine’s Square on Septem­ber 17, 2017.

His lawyer said she had “no ex­pla­na­tion” for him fail­ing to at­tend court.

Mark Smith (34), of Stags­den Or­ton, Gold­hay, Peter­bor­ough, was also a no show in con­nec­tion with a charge of be­ing in posses­sion of two blades.

That in­ci­dent is al­leged to have taken place on a train jour­ney be­tween Ed­in­burgh and Perth rail­way sta­tions on Septem­ber 13 last year.

A sec­ond charge al­leges that he had the Class A drug heroin in his posses­sion at Perth sta­tion.

De­pute fis­cal John Mal­pass said he had checked if the ac­cused had been re­manded any­where or serv­ing a cus­to­dial sen­tence but that proved neg­a­tive.
