A TEENAGER was arrested in Helensburgh last week in the early hours of the morning - whilst in possession of a sword.

Police detained the 16-year-old male in Kirkmichael Road following a call from a member of the public at around 2.30am on Wednesday, April 3.

The lad - who cannot be named because of his age - was remanded in custody after pleading guilty at Dumbarton Sheriff Court to conducting himself in a disorderly manner whilst in possession of the bladed weapon.

No other arrests were made.
