AN Inverness man who was dealing in cocaine between February and December of last year will be sentenced next month at Inverness Sheriff Court.
Shaun Morris (32) was dealing from his former address in Hilton.
He admitted the charge after his home was searched on December 2 last year.
Sheriff Eilidh Macdonald heard police had a warrant to search his property and at 5.30pm officers on mobile patrol observed his vehicle, stopped him and took him to his address where 87 grams of cocaine were found in one gram wraps.
Fiscal depute Alex Swain said these were valued at between £70-£100 per gram.
His mobile phone was examined and it revealed he had been dealing in the Class A drug locally.
He freely admitted to police he had drugs on the property and they were recovered from a drawer in his living room.
Morris now resides at Carbisdale Gardens, Inverness.
Sentence was deferred for background reports until December 10.
