AN Alness man who had cannabis plants growing in a bedroom of his home and was concerned in the supply of the drug has admitted the offences at Inverness Sheriff Court.

Garry Macleod (41), of Salvesen Crescent, pleaded guilty to production and supply of the drug between September and November 2018.

Depute fiscal Karen Aitken told Sheriff Eilidh Macdonald a warrant was executed at the accused's home on November 1, 2018 and during the search Macleod arrived at the address in his car and he was detained.

A grinder containing cannabis was recovered from the car and in the house police found a further grinder, cannabis, scales and herbal cannabis.

One of the bedrooms was being used for cultivation of the drug and ten plants were found in a tent along with specialised growing equipment.

The plants were at various stages of growth and were of good quality.

Macleod admitted being the owner of the items recovered.

His mobile phone was subsequently analysed and it contained numerous messages showing that he had had been selling his own grown cannabis.

A total of 76 grams of cannabis recovered from the property had a value of approximately £1000.

Sentence was deferred for reports until March 6 by Sheriff Eilidh Macdonald.
