A man will stand trial next year accused of making a bogus 999 call concerning a robbery and guns.

Anthony Fowler, 53, allegedly made the call on 21st May this year at C3 Division Complex in Glasgow’s Helen Street.

Prosecutors claim Fowler did this for the purpose of causing annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety to employees of Police Scotland.

Court papers say Fowler persistently made use of a public communications network in that he repeatedly dialled 999.

Fowler is then claimed to have falsely alleged there were guns at a property in Renfrew, Renfrewshire, and that a robbery was taking place there.

It is stated Fowler repeatedly summoned police assistance when no such assistance was required.

He is claimed to have refused to engage with employees and failed to disclose his details.

Fowler pled not guilty to the single charge at Glasgow Sheriff Court.

A trial has been set for April next year and Fowler, of Renfrew, remains on bail meantime.
