A student who threw a rucksack of drugs out his flat window was snared when his McDonald’s discount card was found inside.
Yussuf Adedeji was held following a raid at his home in Aberdeen in July this year.
The 19-year-old was doing a surveying course at the city’s Robert Gordon University at the time.

Police went on to seize a £140,000 of illegal substances including cocaine and ecstasy.
Adedeji now faces a lengthy jail-term after he pled guilty to a string of drug supply charges at the High Court in Glasgow.
He was remanded in custody pending sentencing next month.
The teenager was caught after police got a tip-off that Adedeji may have chucked a bag of drugs out his window.
Prosecutor Eric Robertson said a rucksack was then discovered near the student’s Aberdeen flat.
As well as drugs inside, a wallet was also found with items linked to Adedeji.
Mr Robertson added: “There was a McDonalds discount card belonging to him as well as student identification.”
The court heard Adedeji had previously had “occasional” work at the burger chain.
A haul of cocaine, ecstasy, cannabis, ketamine and a tranquliser called alprazolam were eventually found both in the rucksack and the flat.
Text messages on Adedeji’s phone later showed he had been involved in drug dealing.
But, he told police: “I have not done anything wrong.”
Adedeji was charged, but later bailed on the grounds he hand over his passport within 24 hours.
However, the next day he called police to claim he had been abducted and robbed.
When an officer later tried to contact him, there was no answer on his phone.
It was then discovered Adedeji had got on a bus from Aberdeen bound for London.
The coach was eventually stopped in Lancaster. Adedeji was held where it emerged he had been planning on catching a flight to Nigeria.
Adedeji today pled guilty to being concerned in the supply of all the drugs as well as breaching bail.
Lord Burns remanded him in custody as sentencing was deferred for reports.
