A MAN has been banned from entering Johnstone amid claims he went on a Christmas Day crime spree in the town.

Martin Toner is said to have sprayed graffiti on a takeaway, broke a window at a house and repeatedly kicked the door of the property, as well as being in possession of drugs.

It is also claimed the 22-year-old resisted, obstructed or hindered police officers in a bid to stop them putting handcuffs on him.

Toner was arrested and held in police custody before appearing in the dock at Paisley Sheriff Court to face five charges.

He denies spraying graffiti on the wall of Louise’s Kitchen – a Chinese takeaway in Greenend Avenue, Johnstone.

Toner also denies behaving in a threatening or abusive manner, which was likely to cause a reasonable person to suffer fear or alarm, by breaking a window and repeatedly kicking the front door of a property in the town’s Huntersfield Road.

And he faces two charges of being in possession of class-B drugs by having cannabis and cannabis resin on him on the same occasion.

Toner faces a final charge of resisting, obstructing or hindering PC Frazer Cambridge and PC Graham Muir in the execution of their duty by lashing out with his arms and legs and tensing his body in an attempt to prevent them from placing handcuffs on him.

Defence solicitor Gordon Nicol told Sheriff Moira MacKenzie that Toner, of Maryhill, Glasgow, was pleading not guilty to the five charges and was seeking bail.

Procurator fiscal depute Hazel Emmerson said the Crown did not oppose bail but wanted conditions banning Toner from approaching or contacting three men and from entering Johnstone.

Sheriff MacKenzie agreed, banning Toner from entering the town and placing him on a curfew which will mean he must remain within his home from 7pm to 7am each day.

A trial has been scheduled for April and a pre-trial hearing is set for March.
