Ryan Guminski and Leanne Tolmie

A couple caught with drugs worth more than £10,000 and more than £6,000 of cash in their home have admitted dealing.

Leanne Tolmie and Ryan Guminski pleaded guilty to three offences each when they appeared at Dundee Sheriff Court.

The court heard they were found in possession of more than 5,000 etizolam tablets, 3,332 diazepam tablets, 12.9 grams of heroin and 637 gabapentin capsules – with Tolmie storing some of the cash and drugs in her bra.

Fiscal depute Charmaine Gilmartin said: “Also found in the flat were tick lists, mobile phones, digital scales and various sums of money, amounting to £6,345, which the Crown has moved to forfeit.”

She said Police Scotland had received intelligence that Tolmie was concerned in the supply of drugs from her home address in Provost Road.

Ms Gilmartin said officers saw a large quantity of what appeared to be heroin sitting on digital scales on the living room table.

The pair were both searched and heroin was found on Guminski while Tolmie had a bank bag containing diazepam, gabapentin and etizolam in her bra.

The flat was searched and a large quantity of controlled drugs and medication was recovered.

Ms Gailmartin said: “In addition to the quantity of drugs recovered, text messages from seized mobile phones showed that Ryan Guminski was selling heroin and that both were selling diazepam. Phone texts showed messages both from customers seeking out the drugs from the accused and replies from the accused confirming that they would supply the drug.”

Both Tolmie, 31, a prisoner at Polmont and Guminski, 31, a prisoner at Perth, admitted that between March 7-April 20, at Provost Road and elsewhere, they were concerned in the supply of diazepam and on April 20 at the same address they were concerned in the supply of etizolam.

Tolmie also admitted that on April 20 at the same address she possessed a medicinal product, namely gabapentin, in such a quantity that it could be inferred it was for onward sale and supply.

Guminski also admitted that between March 18-April 20, at the same address in Provost Road, he was concerned in the supply of heroin. Their pleas of not guilty to seven other charges were accepted by the Crown.

Sheriff Alastair Brown deferred sentence until September 13 and remanded them in custody.
