A 37-year-old man has appeared in court after £14,500 of cannabis was recovered in Inverness.
Patrick Boyland appeared at Inverness Sheriff Court yesterday on charges of being concerned in the supply of drugs, and driving a vehicle without insurance or a test certificate.
The Inverness man made no plea, was committed for further examination and released on bail.
Before his appearance, Police Scotland issued a statement: “Around 3.30pm on Monday, 17 May, officers stopped a vehicle on Quayside Court where a large quantity of cannabis was recovered.
“A property on Dell Road was subsequently searched and a further quantity of cannabis was recovered. The drugs are estimated to have a street value of around £14,500.”
