Two men caught with £100,000 worth of heroin in Aberdeen jailed Man in court over £100,000 heroin Two men caught in Aberdeen with heroin with an estimated street value of £100,000 have been jailed. Anthony Roberts, 38, and Ryan Calder, 32, were sentenced to a total of more than seven years at the High Court in Edinburgh. The court heard that Roberts, of Bangor Street, Liverpool, was arrested as he stepped off a coach at Aberdeen bus station in August 2011. Officers found that he was carrying heroin worth an estimated £98,780. The court also heard that Calder, of Gillespie Place, Aberdeen, was arrested after officers saw him entering an area of woodland known as the Gramps in the city's Kincorth area. Officers discovered that he had hidden heroin with a maximum street value of £3,200 under a rock. He was later arrested. The pair pleaded guilty to being involved in the supply of heroin at an earlier court appearance. Sentence had been deferred in order for the court to obtain reports. Sentencing the pair, Judge Lord Bannatyne said: "These are serious offences." He jailed Roberts for three years and nine months. Calder was sentenced to three years and three months.
