A Lochore man was found to be involved in drug dealing after police raided his home.

Jason Torrance, 33, of Ballingry Road, appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on 10th September 2021 at his home address he was concerned in the supply of a controlled drug, amphetamine.

Depute fiscal Catherine Stevenson said police had attended at the house to execute a search warrant and the drugs were found, with a value estimated at up to £1,350.

Defence solicitor Lucy Martin said: “He was in a dark place at the time trying to make ends meet.

"He was also surrounded by peers who were not good for him. He’s very ashamed of his actions.”

Torrance committed a similar offence 10 years ago.

Sheriff Garry Sutherland imposed a community payback order with 120 hours of unpaid work.
