TWO men and a woman are facing trial accused of breaking into a flat in Paisley. 

Mark Michie, Cameron Woods and Charmaine Holmes are alleged to have targeted the Ferguslie flat of David Le Blond on July 28 this year.

And it’s claimed the trio swiped “two replica swords and a dagger.”

Woods, 21, is also accused of assaulting PC Scott Drever on the same occasion by spitting on his face, resisting the officer and two of his colleagues by struggling violently with them, and behaving in a threatening or abusive way. 

Holmes, 22, is also said to have been in possession of a stolen driving licence and someone else’s identity document “without a reasonable excuse.”

Holmes is also charged with behaving in a threatening or abusive way  and is accused of spitting in the face of PC Kerry Anderson.

Michie, 24, faces a single charge of possession of heroin, while Woods faces a final charge of defecating and urinating in a cell at Greenock Police Office - and smearing the walls and floor with excrement and urine.

The case against the trio called for the first time in public at Paisley Sheriff Court last week.

And, after hearing that all three were pleading not guilty, Sheriff James Spy adjourned the case until next month for the trial to take place.
