Four men are facing jail sentences after police smashed a drug gang peddling cocaine, amphetamine and cannabis in the Highlands.
A court heard that Scott Ross, 27, made around £10,000 between June and October 2010 from the drugs trace.
Ross, who has 44 previous convictions include three drug offences, gave customers his bank account details so they could make direct payments and police officers traced nine payments ranging from £120 to £1300.
They also found that Ross' mobile phone revealed text messages betraying his drug dealing activities.
Ross, being held in Inverness jail, pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of cocaine.
Advocate depute Murdoch MacTaggart, prosecuting, said Ross provided cocaine to friends, sometimes without charging, but was also involved "on a commercial level" peddling larger quantities in Inverness, Invergordon, Wick and Alness.
In the dock with Ross at the High Court in Edinburgh on Friday were electrician Graeme Cran, 26, of Cameron Crescent, Munlochy, fish processor Jason McWilliams, 36, of Lismore Road, Kinlochleven, and Robin Sutherland, 24, of West Newfield Crescent, Alness.
Cran admitted trafficking in amphetamine, McWilliams pleaded guilty to involvement in the supply of cocaine and Sutherland admitted being involved in the supply of cannabis.
Judge Lord Jones called for background reports and the four are due back in court next month for sentence.
