Aberdeen man supplied £300,000 of herbal cannabis

A 62-year-old man has been found guilty of supplying herbal cannabis with a maximum street value of about £300,000.

Mark Shum, from Aberdeen, was caught with 45kg of the drug in suitcases when police stopped his car on the A90 Dundee to Aberdeen road last year.

Shum had denied the allegations but was found guilty at the High Court in Edinburgh.

Judge Lord Malcolm deferred sentence on Shum until next month for background reports.
