A CLYDEBANK man has appeared in court charged with being concerned in the supply of controlled drugs.

Kenneth MacMillan is alleged to have been involved in the supply of diclazepam, a class C substance, at his flat in the town’s Bon Accord Square on January 19, 2018.

The 46-year-old faces a further charge of being in possession of a quantity of cannabis on the same date.

Mr MacMillan pleaded not guilty to the charges at Dumbarton Sheriff Court on Tuesday, March 17.

Defence lawyer Kenny McGowan told a hearing at Dumbarton Sheriff Court on March 17 that his client was pleading not guilty to both charges.

Procurator fiscal depute Meghan Glancey said the Crown was ready for the case to proceed to a trial; Mr McGowan said he anticipated he would soon be in a similar position.

Due to Scottish Government guidelines against the setting-up of new jury trials in light of the coronavirus pandemic, no trial date was set at the time.

Instead, Mr MacMillan was ordered to come back to court for a further procedural hearing this week.
