Bo’ness man denies drugs charge

A 21-year-old Bo’ness man appeared at Falkirk Sheriff Court on Monday charged with being concerned in the supply of a controlled drug.

The appearance followed police raids under warrant in Bo’ness and Falkirk on Friday of last week.

Mark Brown, of 5-4 Matthew Steel Court in Bo’ness, pleaded not guilty to supplying mephedrone, a class B controlled substance, against the Misuse of Drugs Act.

He was released on bail and a trial date was set for December 5. There will be an intermediate calling of the case on November 20.
