A motorist stopped because his car’s MOT had expired was found with over £28,000 worth of cannabis stashed in a bag a Court has heard.
Mohammed Afzaal Din, was stopped near Aviemore after a police ANPR check noticed that his vehicle’s MOT had run out.
On stopping the vehicle officers found 100 packages containing 100kgs of cannabis each which had a wholesale value of between £10,000 and £12,000, and a street value of up to £28,560.
Now facing a jail term, Mr Din really ought to have  taken the time to book in his MOT  and with tests at just £20 and appointments that can be booked online there really is no excuse for letting your MOT expire.
