Man caught with weapon in Inverness city centre… Four days later he’s found carrying knife again

Inverness Sheriff Court
Inverness Sheriff Court

A 41-year-old man yesterday admitted carrying a knife in an Inverness city centre street – four days after he was convicted of a similar crime.

Garry Taylor, whose address was given in court as an Inverness prisoner, was found with a black-handled vegetable knife in the city’s Church Street in the early afternoon of April 9 this year.

Fiscal Roderick Urquhart told Inverness Sheriff Court yesterday that police received a phone call from Taylor from a public phone box and constables went down to the area.

The officers found him in the Auctioneers pub and spoke to him and left, before returning to Church Street 20 minutes later and confirming possession of a knife, which he was carrying inside his jacket pocket.

Defence solicitor Shahid Latif said that Taylor, who appeared from custody on the indictment, was found with the knife four days after being convicted of a similar crime.

Mr Latif said that his client was ordered to carry out a community payback order for the previous analogous offence.

Sheriff Margaret Neilson said the proximity of the two offences caused her “some concerns” and deferred sentence for the production of a background report which took account of this.

Taylor was remanded in custody and will be sentenced on July 13.
