Curfew for teen found with knife and drugs

A teenager who was in possession of a craft knife in a public place and was found to be with cannabis has had his liberty restricted.

The 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared before Sheriff Derek Livingston at Falkirk Sheriff Court last Thursday.

He had previously pled guilty to driving an unregistered motor cycle on Bo’ness Road, Polmont, on June 9, 2019 without wearing protective headgear.

During a trial he was found guilty of being in possession of a craft knife and class B drug cannabis on the same date.

He was admonished in relation to the first charge and placed on a restriction of liberty order for three months on the other two.
