A SERIAL drugs dealer, already in jail for offences, will serve more time behind bars after another conviction.

Donald Simpson has a history of drug-dealing and the latest offence involved the seizure of cannabis with a potential value of more than £10,000.

Simpson, 45, formerly of Meadow Court, Main Street, Crosshill, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on April 25 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 £2,000 in cash.

The drugs recovered had a potential street value of more than £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.

The latest punishment will make Simpson a long-term prisoner – more than four years – and not entitled to automatic early release at the half-way point.
