A man is to appear in court from custody tomorrow (Monday December 23rd) after being arrested by Stornoway police in the town centre on Friday.

The man was arrested within licensed premises at 7.15pm on Friday. He’s in court on charges connected with a previous incident.

Possible controlled substances

Five people were searched by police in Stornoway town centre over the weekend based on suspicion aroused by their behaviour.

In each case a quantity of a possible controlled substance was confiscated from the individual and has been sent for testing.

If the substances are found to be of a controlled nature the individuals will be charged under the misuse of drugs act and reported to the Procurator Fiscal at a later date.

Vandalism appeal

Stornoway police are appealing for any witnesses to damage caused to a town centre property during last week.

Windows at the rear of an unoccupied property in Scotland Street have been smashed over a period between Saturday December 14th and Thursday December 19th, and police are asking for public help identifying what has happened.

If anyone is aware of someone acting suspiciously in the area between those dates, or heard or saw anything which may help, they are asked to contact Police Scotland on the non-emergency number 101, quoting incident number NH1856/19.
