Sentence deferred on Oban teenager
AN OBAN teenager has admitted drug dealing after being caught with £1,000 worth of cannabis in his bedroom.
John Samuel Scott, 18, of 10 Hazeldean Crescent, Oban, pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of herbal cannabis, a controlled drug, on January 18.
Procurator fiscal Alasdair Shaw told Oban Sheriff Court on Wednesday February 1 that ‘police attended the home address of the accused,’ and ‘ within the bedroom they found 12 wraps and £100 within a plastic bag.’
Mr Shaw said officers also found £1,390 in cash and ‘a set of digital scales with green herbal matter on it, and a tick list’. He added that ‘the combined total was 71.79g, with an approximate street value of £1,000.’
Defending, Jane McLaren said: ‘Mr Scott made a full and frank admission to police. He tells me he is himself a cannabis user and he would sell it to friends. He was funding his own habit.’
Sheriff Ruth Anderson said: ‘This is a serious matter. I shall call for a criminal justice social work report.’
Sentencing was deferred until February 28.
