Oban drug dealer is fined £500 for supplying cannabis to friends
A 19-YEAR- OLD Oban man has been fined £ 500 for supplying cannabis.
Brandon Ferris, of 4 Hynish Crescent, also had to forfeit £ 335 after it was found in his possession in relation to the crime.
He appeared in Oban Sheriff Court on Tuesday July 18.
The court heard that on April 11, 2017, police obtained information that Ferris was supplying the drug. Upon obtaining a warrant, they went to his address and he complied with the police, handing them a number of wraps containing cannabis.
He also surrendered £ 35, saying it was money he obtained from selling ‘ weed’. He also provided the police with a digital scale.
Police also found £ 300 in the property, as well as 11 small bags with cannabis, each worth around £20.
Ferris’s solicitor said that at the time the offence was committed, he was using the substance regularly, purchasing it in large amounts, and selling some to a small number of friends in order to fund his own use.
