No plea from married couple appearing in court on drugs charges

A married couple appeared in private at Lerwick Sheriff Court on drugs charges on Friday.

Regular offender Ebrahim Hassan, 47, and his wife Laura, 34, both of Gilbertson Road in Lerwick, appeared on petition alleging a contravention of the misuse of drugs act.
Neither of the two made any plea or declaration. They were committed for further examination.

Mrs Hassan was remanded in custody and is expected to make a second appearance in court next week. Her husband, meanwhile, was released on bail.

On Wednesday police seized “significant quantities” of amphetamine, heroin and money after raiding two houses in the town.
