TWO MEN are accused of possessing petrol bombs.

Ralph McIlveen, 33, and Craig Easton, 26, allegedly “made or possessed” the weapons in Glasgow last September.

Prosecutors claim the pair used “three bottles containing flammable liquid, namely rags soaked in petrol, and a canister with petrol.”

It is then stated that they “discarded the canister containing petrol” from a moving car before exiting the vehicle.

The pair are said to have got rid of a set of car keys and concealed them in a bushed area.

It is alleged this was done to avoid guilt of being in possession of petrol bombs, to avoid arrest and pervert the course of justice.

The incidents are all said to have taken place in various streets in the city’s Yoker and Knightswood areas.

Easton faces a charge of dangerous driving of a Ford Focus car on Summerhill Road in Drumchapel last January.

Easton, William McGuire, 25, and Charles McGinlay, 31, are also charged with throwing bottles and smashing a window at a house on the same road.

McGuire is also on another charge of smashing a window with a bat at Carolside Drive, Drumchapel, last August.

A hearing at Glasgow Sheriff Court was postponed on Friday due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The case was dealt with administratively and a new hearing date is set for August this year.

The four men were not required at court and no pleas have been made.

McGuire, of Clydebank, McIlveen, of Drumchapel, Easton, of Whiteinch, and McGinlay, of Parkhead, remain on bail meantime.
