Court / Woman admits drug supply

A WOMAN from Lerwick has admitted being concerned in the supply of cocaine and heroin which had a potential market value of over £5,000.

Forty seven year old Violet Robertson, of Norgaet, pleaded guilty at Lerwick Sheriff Court on Wednesday to being concerned in the supply of the drugs at the town’s NorthLink Ferry Terminal on 5 June.

Procurator fiscal Duncan Mackenzie told the court that the quantity of cocaine involved was over 26 grams, while the quantity of heroin was 27.58 grams.

Broken down into the smallest sellable amounts the drugs could reach a total of nearly £5,400, the court heard.

Sheriff Ian Cruickshank adjourned the case for social work reports until 4 December, when Robertson’s defence is due to give representation.
