TWO men who were caught carrying cocaine with a street value of nearly £300,000 are facing lengthy prison sentences.
Garry Davidson, 25, and Keith Milne, 55, were arrested by police in Aberdeen’s Kincorth Crescent on January 9.
The High Court in Edinburgh heard on Friday that detectives were acting on a tip-off the duo were involved in the drugs trade.
The court was told officers followed the pair and swooped after collecting enough evidence about their activities.
When police moved in, they found the drugs were being stored in Davidson’s car.
He is already serving a 16-month prison sentence for driving his Mini Cooper dangerously in Aberdeen’s Girdleness Road when he was over the legal alcohol limit and banned.
At the High Court in Edinburgh, Davidson, of Blackbutts Steading, Muchalls, and Milne, of Deevale Terrace, Aberdeen, admitted being involved in the supply of drugs.
The cocaine they were caught with had a street value of £286,700.
Judge Lady Wolffe deferred sentence until December 16 for reports.
The two men will also face proceeds of crime hearings on February 16.
At his trial on motoring offences last month, a jury found Davidson guilty of driving along Girdleness Road at “excessive speeds” on July 2.
He also smashed into a parked car, but was cleared of causing life-threatening injuries to his friend Scott Duguid, who was a passenger in his vehicle.
Earlier this month he was also jailed for six months – which will run concurrent to his 16-month sentence – for throwing a glass at a woman at an Aberdeen bar, narrowly missing her.
