A north-east teenager has been ordered to carry out unpaid work after admitting being concerned in the supply of drugs.
The 17-year-old, who can’t be named for legal reasons, appeared at the city’s sheriff court for sentencing after admitting two charges.
He pled guilty to being concerned in the supply of cannabis in Inverurie between September 9 and December 9 last year.
He was also in possession of ecstasy on December 9.
Fiscal depute Kelly Mitchell told the court: “On December 9, officers were on mobile patrol when they saw a Fiat Punto.
“Officers approached the vehicle and found there were three males and the accused seated in the rear nearside seat. Officers noted a smell of cannabis. All the occupants, including the accused, were detained for a search.
“At that time, the accused voluntarily removed a clear bag containing a herbal substance, and a bag containing white powder from his waistband.”
The court heard his phone was found to have texts “relating to drugs supply”. The cannabis was valued at £150.
Sheriff Gill placed him under supervision for a year and ordered him to carry out 130 hours of unpaid work.
