Aberdeen dealer Robert Richards jailed after drugs found behind pictures

A drug dealer has been jailed for six years after heroin and crack cocaine was discovered hidden behind pictures in his Aberdeen flat.

Robert Richards, 44, admitted being caught with the drugs in Holburn Street in November last year.

The High Court in Edinburgh heard they were worth nearly £2,000.

Lord Uist told Richards - who had previous drug convictions - he would have jailed him for nine years but for his guilty plea.
