Sheriff Robert Frazer was told officers found several bags of green herbal substance, identified as cannabis.

The total weight was 203 grams and fiscal depute Shay Treanor said the maximum street value depending upon what weight of deals would amount to £3625.

Defending, John MacColl said his client, who now resides at Asher's Court, Nairn, was "a heavy user but as he hopes to join the Army, he is no longer".

He conceded that some of the haul may have been passed on to others of a like mind.

Sheriff Frazer ordered Grieve to carry out 80 hours of unpaid community work.
