Celtic firearm case: Seven charged

Seven people appeared in court today charged with possessing an imitation firearm after they were arrested outside Celtic’s training ground.

Firearms-trained specialist officers were sent to the scene near the club’s Lennoxtown training ground in East Dunbartonshire in Scotland on Sunday.

Today, two teenage males and five women appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court.

The Crown Office said that Ross Hind, 19, Gary Booth, 17, Rachel McElveen, 19, Ashley Pittner, 20, Amy Kirkwood, 20, Natalie Gray, 20, and Katrina Henderson, 21, were charged under the Firearms Act 1968.

They were charged, under section 16A, with possessing an imitation firearm causing the belief that violence may be used.

None of them made any plea or declaration and all were released on bail.

The case was continued for further examination.
