Siege teens appear in court


THE aftermath of a dramatic 10-hour siege in Buckie has seen five teenagers appear in court.

Following the stand-off with police at a property on Wallace Avenue on Thursday September 24, which saw officers eventually force entry to the upstairs premises, the teens were taken into custody.

Facing a variety of charges, the five appeared behind closed doors last Monday afternoon at Elgin Sheriff Court.

James McPhee (18) from Elgin, faces charges of assault to permanent injury and disfigurement, abusive and threatening behaviour, attempted theft and two counts of vandalism.

He was remanded in custody and is set to appear in court next Tuesday.

A 17-year-old youth, also from Elgin, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been charged with assault to permanent injury and disfigurement, three counts of abusive and threatening behaviour, vandalism, and assaulting or impeding the police.

As with McPhee, he was also remanded until Tuesday.

James Donald, from Elgin, faces a charge of assault to permanent injury and disfigurement and two further counts of abusive and threatening behaviour.

The 18-year-old was released on bail and no date has been set as yet for his return to court.

Facing charges of abusive and threatening behaviour are Jordon Smith (19), from Buckie and Christopher Green (19), from Forres face.

Both were released on bail and their next court dates have yet to be confirmed.

None of the five made any plea or declaration.
