A HEREFORDSHIRE man has appeared before magistrates accused of offences including possessing a knife.

William Harmon appeared before magistrates in Hereford in November accused of possessing class B controlled drug amphetamine, possessing a knife in a public place, and causing an offensive, indecent, obscene, or menacing message to be sent.


The court heard from prosecutor Mark Hambling that the 35-year-old is accused of possessing a quantity of controlled class B drug amphetamine in Hereford on June 17, and possessing a lock knife in Hereford's Gaol Street without good reason or lawful authority on the same date.

He is also accused of causing Facebook messages of a grossly offensive or indecent, obscene, or menacing character to be sent in Herefordshire between May 27 and June 13.

The case was adjourned and Harmon, of Monkhide Village Road, Herefordshire, was granted unconditional bail.

He will appear before magistrates in Hereford next on February 6.
