A drug dealer caught with nearly £100,000 worth of cocaine had a bank statement in his car showing what he was being paid for the illicit run.
Gareth Hughes was making almost £3,000 in a month for driving the class A drug to an underworld figure in Scone.
Perth Sheriff Court was told Hughes was caught transporting nearly a quarter of a kilo of cocaine with a very high purity on June 6.
Depute fiscal Eilidh Robertson said: “Police stopped the accused within a car on the M90 northbound as they had intelligence there were controlled drugs within the vehicle and he was carrying them on behalf of a named individual in Scone.
“The car was searched. A box containing white powder was found behind the front passenger seat. It was confirmed to be 249.6 grams of cocaine of 77% purity.
“Scales with traces of cocaine were also found in a golf bag and a bank statement showed the accused had been paid £2,980 over a month by the named individual.”
She told the court if the cocaine was cut with other substances and sold in individual street deals it could be worth as much as £95,850.
Hughes, 49, of Minerva Street, Huddersfield, admitted being concerned in the supply of cocaine near Bridge of Earn.
Deferring sentence for reports, Sheriff William Wood said: “A custodial sentence will be inevitable.”
