AN OLD Kilpatrick man has been ordered to carry out unpaid work after he was caught with a blade.

Garry Campbell, of Erskine View, previously pleaded guilty to being in possession of the weapon and a quantity of a cannabis at Burnside Court, Clydebank, on June 1.

His defence agent said sentence had previously been deferred on June 30 as Campbell was wearing a cast due to an injury and the court planned to assess his fitness level to carry out unpaid work.

However, when the 45-year-old appeared in the dock at Dumbarton Sheriff Court on Wednesday, August 30, the court heard he may not been of good behaviour.

Depute fiscal Martin McGuigan said he had since been charged with the alleged possession of another article which had a blade or was sharply pointed on July 10.

Sheriff William Gallacher said: "I'm not going to delay the matter until the outcome of other matter.

"You are now in a fit condition."

Campbell was sentenced to 110 hours of unpaid work, reduced from 160 hours on account of his guilty plea, to be completed within nine months.

He was admonished for the charge relating to the possession of cannabis.
