An Aberdeen drug dealer was caught when police found thousands of pounds in cash stashed in his flat.
Jamie Kane had been at home, in the Beachview Court high-rise in Seaton, when officers knocked on his door with a warrant for his arrest last October.
But the 28-year-old failed to answer, prompting police to force their way inside the property in search of him.
They found Kane in his living room and, as they checked his details, noticed he was becoming “agitated” and appeared “eager” to leave the flat.
At that point, the officers spotted various pieces of drug paraphernalia on “open display” around the room.
Kane was then taken to Kittybrewster police station so that he and his flat could be subjected to a “systematic” search for illegal substances.
And after scouring the property, officers found 13.95g of cocaine – which was estimated to have a maximum street value of £1,600, depending on how it was packaged up and sold.
Self-seal bags, pill presses, digital scales and cling film were also confiscated by police, as was £4,251 in cash.
Kane’s case called at Aberdeen Sheriff Court yesterday, where he admitted, via letter, being concerned in the supply of cocaine.
His solicitor, Graham Morrison, asked for social work reports to be completed before sentencing.
Sheriff Graeme Napier agreed, and Kane will be sentenced in August.
