COPS have been ordered to arrest a teenager who sent offensive messages online.

On Thursday at Alloa Sheriff Court, Sheriff Christopher Shead granted a non-appearance warrant after 18-year-old Demi McCallum failed to show for punishment.

The youngster, of Easterton Drive in Cowie, was due to be sentenced for sending a racially offensive message via social media to another woman on October 16, 2015.

McCallum then sent a message to another girl via social media on October 29, 2015, which again had racially offensive remarks about her original victim.
