A MAN caught with enough heroin to make around 60 “tenner” bags told a court yesterday he bought in bulk because he was fed up paying over the odds at Oban.

Colin Cornelius, 34, is on trial before a sheriff and jury at Oban Sheriff Court accused of being concerned in the supply of heroin at 13 Polvinister Gardens, Oban, on September 17, 2008.

He denies the charge claiming the three bags – one with 0.074oz and two containing 0.11oz of heroin – found by police at his ex-partner’s home were for his own use.
