Police checked a stationary car in Carrbridge and found its occupant had more than £1000 worth of cocaine inside.

Inverness Sheriff Court was told that officers were on mobile patrol in the village on July 13, 2021 when they approached the car to check if everything was okay.

Fiscal depute Victoria Silver said they had cause to carry out a drugs search and discovered £1210 worth of the Class A narcotic inside.

Nicholas McIntosh, of Poldhullie, Strathdon told officers the 14.2 grammes of the drug was his and had a value of £800, the court heard earlier today.

Defence solicitor Natalie Paterson told Sheriff Gordon Fleetwood: "He no longer has a difficulty with cocaine."

McIntosh, aged 39, admitted illegal possession of a controlled substance at the court on Monday.

Sheriff Fleetwood deferred sentence until August 11 for a background report.
