A taxi driver from North Lanarkshire is facing a jail term after being caught with high-purity heroin with a potential street value of £2,785,710.
John McGill, 42, admitted being concerned in the supply of the drug after 6.5 kilos were found at his home in Airdrie on 24 April 2012.
McGill was caught in a cross-border police operation after being tracked in a rented van from England.
His sentence was deferred at the High Court in Edinburgh and bail continued.
