An Aberdeen man has been fined in relation to £120 of heroin he claimed someone left at his house after a party.
Stuart Bradley pled guilty to being in possession of diamorphine during a hearing at Aberdeen Sheriff Court.
Fiscal depute Lynzi Souter said 4.5g of the drug was found on March 13 at the 39-year-old’s address, valued at approximately £120.
Defence agent Chris Maitland, representing Bradley, said: “This was a warrant executed by the police at his address.
“When speaking to police he has told them where to go and look for these items.”
He added: “He’s not a user.
“He’d had a party at the weekend and someone had left it there and he’d stashed it in a cupboard.”
However Sheriff Sukhwinder Gill was not convinced by his explanation.
She said: “I’m not entirely convinced if I’m honest about the fact the drugs were not for personal use.”
She fined Bradley, whose address was given in court papers as Kittybrewster Square, Aberdeen, £260, to be paid at a rate of £10 per fortnight.
