Police kept a look-out for a car in Moray-shire after being tipped off it could be carrying drugs.
Then, at about noon on January 17, 2019, officers spotted it near Elgin on the A96 between the city and the Highland capital, Inverness Sheriff Court heard this week.
Dylan Rowlands, a 21 year old of Balnabeen Drive, Dingwall, was a front seat passenger of the vehicle being driven by an unnamed person, the court heard yesterday.
Fiscal depute David Morton said: "Both occupants were nervous, agitated and reluctant to engage with officers. Mr Rowlands volunteered to them that he had controlled drugs in his boxer shorts and a package containing 80.43 grams of diamorphine was recovered.
"No other drugs were found. Police estimate that the drugs would have a value of £1920 pounds. If ultimately divided into the usual 'tenner bags', they would have the potential to realise up to £5360 pounds."
Sentence was deferred until February 18 for a background report and Rowlands had his bail continued.
