Prestonpans teenager brandished axe in high street

Have your say

A Prestonpans teenager who shouted threats while brandishing an axe has been placed on a community payback order and supervision.

Dylan Woods was arrested after an incident in the town’s High Street last year.

Nineteen-year-old Woods initially pleaded guilty to an amended charge on January 24 this year and had his sentence deferred for him to be of good behaviour and to be assessed as suitable for the Venture Trust.

On Wednesday last week, Haddington Sheriff Court was told Woods, of 3 Preston Crescent, was suitable for the programme and had been of good behaviour.
