A teenager accused of putting lit fireworks through the letterboxes of several Campbeltown houses has been jailed until his trial.

John Townsley, 18, of 20 Glenside, Campbeltown, pleaded not guilty to charges of culpably and recklessly putting lit fireworks through the letterboxes of three Glenside properties on four occasions between October 31 and November 7.

He also denied maliciously putting a firework into one of the properties on November 2, causing fire damage to the carpet inside.

Sheriff Patrick Hughes remanded Townsley into custody until his trial on January 9.
