A drug dealer has been spared jail over the supply of cocaine in the Highlands.

Ashley Kerr (36) was found with more than four grams of the class A narcotic during a police raid at her then home at Balgate Mill, Kitarlity.

Officers found the drugs in a box in the bathroom along with scales to weigh out the product into half gram deals.

A mobile phone also provided police with evidence that she was dealing the drug.

The drugs seized on September 14, 2017, were worth around £400 Inverness Sheriff Court was told.

Kerr, now of Tulloch Square, Dingwall, was sentenced to a community payback order as a direct alternative to custody.

Sheriff Eilidh MacDonald said she would be under supervision for 18 months and would need to carry out 200 hours of unpaid work in the community in the next year.
