A TILLICOULTRY man has been handed a supervision order after appearing at Alloa Sheriff Court for drug dealing.

Colin Muir stood in the dock last Thursday as part of a sentencing diet.

He admitted a charge of supplying Diazepam and diamorphine, also known as heroin, which is a class A drug.

It was alleged that between October 15, 2015, and December 9, 2015, Muir, whose address was given as Stoneyacre, Tillicoultry, was concerned in the supply of both of the drugs.

Police searched a property at Comrie Court and found 0.2g of heroin which had an approximate street value of £20.

They then discovered mobile phones which had text messages indicative of the supply of Diazepam.

The court also heard that officers also found £686.83 in cash.

Muir’s lawyer claimed that the 29-year-old had been selling drugs in an attempt to fund his own drug habit.

He was sentenced to two years of supervision by Sheriff David Mackie.
