Extra jail time for Fife drugs dealer
A Fife drug dealer, already in jail, will serve more time behind bars after another conviction.
Donald Simpson has a history of drug offences and the latest involved cannabis with a potential value of over £10,000.
Simpson (45), formerly of Meadow Court, Main Street, Crosshill, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.
He admitted that on 25th April last year at Inchgall Avenue, Crosshill, he was concerned in the supply of cannabis.
Depute fiscal Ron Hay said police went to the address to execute a warrant and found quantities of cannabis around the house, scales, mobile phones and £2000 in cash.
The drugs recovered had a potential street value of over £10,000.
Defence agent Alexander Flett said the property involved was the home of his client’s partner and the money belonged to her.
Simpson had been disqualified from driving, was unable to find work and ended up in debt, added the solicitor.
Sheriff Pino di Emidio jailed Simpson for 12 months to be served consecutively to his current term.
Last year at the same court Simpson was jailed for 42 months for being involved in the supply of amphetamine and driving while disqualified.
