Stenhousemuir dealer caught with £775 of cannabis

Student Filipe Mesquita (22) admitted being concerned in the supply of class B drug cannabis in Dorrator Road, Camelon, on October 19 last year.

Mesquita, 26 Cedar Grove, Stenhousemuir, was caught with 25 bags of cannabis worth £775 and also £665 in cash.

It was stated the drugs were bought in bulk to be used for “social supply” among friends and not for any commercial gain.

Sheriff Derek Livingston fined Mesquita £540 to be paid back at a rate of £80 per month.
