A Lewis man has been fined £400 for growing cannabis.

Bryan Macleod pleaded guilty to the offence at Stornoway Sheriff Court.

The court was told police acted on information received and obtained a warrant to search his house in Ranish, North Lochs.

They turned up with a sniffer dog on 30 November.

Macleod, 26, co-operated with police during the search and directed police to a cupboard where a plant was drying.
