Update re Anti Social Behaviour
A previous report was submitted detailing an incident at 12.48pm on Tuesday 23rd April, when the driver of the West Coast Motors service bus had cause to stop at Tarbert and request 4 adult males to leave due to their continued behaviour. The situation developed with damage being caused to the bus and two members of the public being assaulted. Police were called and after a search of the Tarbert area, four males aged 19, 24, 24 and 32 were arrested for various offences including breach of the peace, assault, vandalism, resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.
All four males were held in custody due to the incident and appeared at Campbeltown Sheriff Court the following day at which time three of the males were remanded in custody and one male was released on bail pending the next court appearance.

The four males attended court on Wednesday 8th May at which time 3 of the males were given custodial sentences of between 8 and 10 months, with the fourth being kept in custody while his case is still being dealt with.

Editor: This last is very reassuring news, seeing the law acting quickly and decisively – and punitively – in the case of conduct which puts others at risk and which cannot be tolerated in any civilised society. It is also thoughtful of Sergeant Mark Wilson at Lochgilphad Police Station to update the public on the outcome of this frightening incident.
