Trio are sentenced for drugs
THREE offenders were sentenced at Oban Sheriff Court on Tuesday after pleading guilty to drugs offences.
Youngster Ryan Morrison who was found with a ‘large amount’ of cannabis, a class-B drug, in his possession at the Corran Halls on May 9 2016 had his sentence deferred for social work reports.
Sheriff Ruth Anderson told Morrison, 17, of Hillside, Dunbeg: ‘All I can say is you are lucky your plea to possession has been accepted. Do you understand that?’ Morrison nodded.
The shocking death of an Oban drug user who took illegal ecstasy tablets was not enough to deter a user whose home was searched by police on January 2, 2016, days after the fatality.
Kevin McLetchie, 28, and Kellie McCuish, 37, both of Glenfoot Terrace, admitted possession of cannabis. McLetchie pled guilty to a further charge of possessiing seven ecstasy tablets he had bought ‘for the party season’.
McLetchie was fined £ 300 and McCuish was ordered to pay £100 to the court.
Paul Nicol, 45, of no fixed address, was jailed for six months after admitting supplying heroin found at Albany Street, Oban, on June 3, 2016. Cash totalling £280, found during a search of Nicol’s home, was also forfeited.
