The Oban Times - - News -

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.
