A man has been jailed for a year after admitting being concerned in the supply of heroin in Aberdeen

Daniel Rae, 27, appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court and admitted being concerned in the supply of the drug at Tesco on the city’s King Street and Linksfield Road between February 3 and March 28 this year.

The court heard the heroin had a maximum value of £2,150.

Fiscal Depute Stephanie Ross told the court police officers saw a vehicle drive into the forecourt at Tesco, with Rae getting out to fill up with fuel.

Officers went to speak to Rae.

Miss Ross said: “As they approached the vehicle, the accused ran. Police officers pursued the accused.

“Rae went over a wall before jumping into overgrowth.

“Seven wraps of drugs were recovered from the overgrowth and Rae, a prisoner of HMP Grampian, was apprehended.

“Texts relating to the sale of drugs were found on his phone.”

Defence agent Ian Hingston said: “He does not seek to diminish his responsibility.”
