A TROUBLEMAKER with an “appalling” record in his native England is now behind bars in Scotland.

Callum Sexton caused a disturbance and made threats to bomb and stab when staying with friends in Lochgelly.

Sexton, 25, of Ashbourne Road, Stockton-on-Tees, appeared from custody at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on July 18, at Paul Street, Lochgelly, he shouted, swore, made threats to bomb a property, made threats of violence with weapons and brandished two spikes.

He was also unlawfully in possession of an offensive weapon, the spikes.

Depute fiscal Azrah Yousaf said Sexton had been staying with friends at the time. At 4.30am, a neighbour heard Sexton shouting outside.

A female who had been with Sexton was distressed and went to a neighbour’s home. When they later went back to her home, Sexton began threatening them.

He was shouting: “I’ll bomb your houses” and “I’ll stab you” as he brandished two garden spikes.

He also threatened he would cut someone’s legs off with a machete.

Defence solicitor Alexander Flett said: “He doesn’t have much recollection of what took place. He was visiting friends.”

Sheriff Charles Macnair told Sexton: “You have a truly appalling record including violence and threats.” He jailed him for six months.
