A parked car in a lay-by near Carrbridge was checked by police who suspected it contained drugs when they detected a strong smell.

Paisley man, 30 year old Gavin Sproule of Foxbar Crescent, was standing beside it and officers decided to take the vehicle to nearby Aviemore to be properly searched on October 28, 2020.

Inverness Sheriff Court heard earlier today that they found £5,450 in cash contained in five envelopes and nine wraps of cocaine in the glove box, totalling 252 grams and with a street value of between £7,500 and £10,000.

Sproule admitted being concerned in the supply of a Class A drug and sentence was deferred for background and medical reports.

Defence solicitor Duncan Henderson reserved his comments until sentencing on March 10.

Sproule's bail was continued but Sheriff Gary Aitken warned him that jail was a possibility.
