Trio are sen­tenced for drugs

The Oban Times - - News -

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.
