A drug addict who caused a disturbance on Dunfermline High Street by struggling with police officers has been jailed.

Kirsty Syme, 33, of Alma Street, Inverkeithing, has a record of drug-related offences and appeared from custody at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

She admitted that on March 10 on High Street she obstructed two police officers exercising their powers under the Misuse of Drugs Act and struggled with them.

Syme had in her possession a controlled drug, heroin.

She also admitted conducting herself in a disorderly manner by shouting, swearing, making threats, struggling with police and committing a breach of the peace.

“The accused was seen coming out of a phone box and attempted to engage in a conversation with a male about ‘smack’,” said depute fiscal Alisdair Shaw.

“She was approached by officers and was found to have two bags containing brown powder. When she was searched she clenched her hands and refused to let them take the bags.

“She then started struggling violently with the officers. She had to be restrained by both officers and discarded both bags on the floor. She was arrested and continued to shout and swear.”

Sheriff Charles MacNair jailed Syme for four months.
