A former Hawick man appeared in private at Selkirk Sheriff Court facing a charge under the Misuse of Drugs Act. The court appearance came after police stopped a vehicle at the Carter Bar at the weekend.

Paul Marshall, 31, now living in Newcastle, is accused of being concerned in the supply of a controlled drug to another person.

He made no plea or declaration and his case was continued for further examination. Marshall was released on bail and his next court appearance is on a date yet to be confirmed.
