A MAN who denies possessing drugs will stand trial in April.
David McFarlane, of Hadrian Road, Jarrow, entered a ‘not guilty’ plea to a charge of being in possession of amphetamines, a Class B drug, at South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court.
The offence is alleged to have taken place in South Shields on Saturday, December 28.
Magistrates accepted jurisdiction for the case and McFarlane elected for his case to be heard at South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court.
The 45-year-old will be back at the court for his trial on April 22.
He was granted unconditional bail until then.
