A 21-year-old Elgin man who was dealing drugs from his mother and aunt's homes has been ordered to carry out unpaid work for the community.

After receiving intelligence pointing to Jake Bremner, the police obtained search warrant for both properties.

On January 23 last year, officers discovered almost 48 grams of cocaine, which had a street value of about £4500.

In addition, they found stashes of herbal cannabis weighing just over two ounces, which could have been sold for about £445.

A total of £1890 in bank notes was also recovered, as were various items of drugs paraphernalia.

Sentencing against Bremner had previously been delayed by Inverness Sheriff Court so as to allow social workers time to compile a report about his background.

Earlier today, Sheriff Robert Frazer ordered him to carry out 280 hours of unpaid work after he admitted being involved in the supply of cocaine and cannabis.
