Man jailed over drugs

The Press and Journal (Moray) - - LOCAL NEWS -

Staff at a Nairn ho­tel were sus­pi­cious of a man who came into their premises wear­ing sun­glasses at mid­night.

So when Thi­ago De Lima left, they phoned po­lice on Au­gust 7.

Of­fi­cers in­ter­cepted 32-year-old De Lima of Lo­gan­lea Place, Ed­in­burgh, but he re­fused to pro­vide ei­ther road­side or breath spec­i­mens at Burnett Road Po­lice Sta­tion in In­ver­ness.

His car was later searched and they found over 130 grams of cannabis, with a street value of £1,100 and £1,170 in cash.

Yes­ter­day at In­ver­ness Sher­iff Court, De Lima, who had ear­lier ad­mit­ted two charges of re­fus­ing to give breath spec­i­mens, be­ing con­cerned in the sup­ply of drugs and a fail­ure to ap­pear, was jailed for six months. He was also banned from driv­ing for two years.
