He earlier pled guilty to being knowingly concerned in the fraudulent evasion of the prohibition on importation of ketamine, and also to being concerned in the supply of ketamine.

However, Sheriff Sukhwinder Gill further deferred sentence on the 18-year-old, of Kennedy Place, Ellon, for the matter to call before another sheriff on Tuesday.
