Couple 'tried to smuggle phone into jail with drone'
A couple have appeared in court accused of attempting to smuggle a mobile phone into Perth Prison by flying it over the security wall with a drone.
Philip Moreton, 31, and Cheyrell Davie, 36, appeared at Perth Sheriff Court on a petition alleging the charge at the maximum security jail.
They made no plea or declaration at a brief hearing in private.
They were granted bail and the case against them was continued for further examination.
A spokesman for the Crown Office confirmed that the couple face charges under the Prisons (Scotland) 1989 Act section 41, relating to the introduction of illicit items into the prison.
