A MAYBOLE man who shouted and swore at his partner was later caught carrying £10 worth of cocaine and heroin.

William Johnstone, 53, was put on a community payback order at Ayr Sheriff Court last week.

The Murray Gardens resident had previously admitted threatening behaviour, possession of drugs and a breach of bail orders – over an issue with a bus ticket.

Johnstone had pleaded guilty to shouting and swearing at the woman and threatening to damage property during an incident in Kirkland Street in the town on January 18 this year.

He also pleaded guilty to a separate charge of being in possession of 0.3g of diamorphine and 0.1g of cocaine on February 16 this year.

The court heard the drugs were valued at £10.

Johnstone also pleaded guilty to breaching a bail condition by being outside his home address between the hours of 7pm and 7am on February 23.

Robert Logan, defending, said the breach matter was “almost comical” and related to “an issue with a bus ticket”.

Sheriff Siobhan Connolly put Johnstone under social work supervision for 12 months and told him to return for a review in three months.
