AN INNERLEITHEN man has admitted a drug dealing offence at Selkirk Sheriff Court.

Thirty-year-old Adam McElhaney pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of cocaine on February 20.

The court heard that 11.3 grammes of the class A drug was recovered during a raid on his property along with around £2,500 in cash, grip seal bags, scales and a mobile telephone containing messages.

Co-accused Toni Halliday, 22, had her not guilty plea accepted by the Crown.

Sheriff Peter Paterson told McElhaney that being involved in the supply of a class A drug was a serious matter.

He deferred sentence until April 3 for background reports to establish whether there was an alternative to custody.
