Aberdeen shopkeeper fined over legal highs documentation

An Aberdeen shopkeeper who was selling so-called legal highs has been fined.

Liston Pacitti, 26, was caught with different types of new psychoactive substances (NPS) at the Odyssey store in the indoor market on Market Street.

He failed to produce documents relating to the traceability of the products to prove to trading standards officers that they were safe.

He admitted charges under General Product Safety Regulations 2005 legislation and was fined £1,800.

Sheriff Alison Stirling said at Aberdeen Sheriff Court that the regulations were to protect the public from potentially dangerous products.
