Man accused of carrying pistol on Dundee street ‘stared in windows’

Morgan Street

A Dundee man has been accused of a series of firearms offences — including presenting a gun at a woman and possessing a pistol.

Darren Anderson, 28, appeared at Dundee Sheriff Court where he faced two separate indictments involving a number of charges.

Anderson, whose address was given in court as the Lily Walker Centre in Ann Street, is accused of being found with a pistol in Morgan Street on November 19 last year.

It is alleged that this happened while he had 342 days remaining of a prison sentence, imposed in June 2015, which had not yet expired.

Anderson is also charged with engaging in a course of conduct which caused Roddy Balfour to suffer fear and alarm on a number of occasions in Morgan Street between September 30 and November 14, both last year.

He allegedly gesticulated towards Mr Balfour, phoned him, challenged him to a fight, threatened him with violence, threatened to damage his car and threatened to damage his house.

Anderson is further accused of possessing and displaying a handgun to Nadine Kelbie in Ann Street on November 10 last year.

He also allegedly drove in Morgan Place in an erratic manner and repeatedly stared in windows on November 17 last year.

Anderson is also accused of possessing a firearm in Morgan Street on November 19 last year with the intention of causing Mr Balfour to believe that unlawful violence would be used against him.

Anderson denies all of the charges against him.

A first diet was continued until Tuesday in order for further preparations to be made by Anderson’s defence team and he was released on bail meantime.
