Man admits £200k drug rap
A chef is behind bars after police seized more than £200,000 of Class A drugs.
Alan Dowling, 49, was held after his home in Alford Place, Linwood, was raided last July.
A judge heard how officers discovered a large haul of cocaine and ecstasy.
Dowling had also been clocked near the cafe where he worked, in Glasgow’s Strathbubgo neighbourhood, making a drugs handover to Nicholas Balfour.
It led to Dowling yesterday pleading guilty to being concerned in the supply of cocaine a and ecstasy.
Pipe fitter Balfour, 31, of the city’s Drumoyne, admitted the same cocaine charge.
Lady Rae remanded both in c custody at the High Court in Glasgow and deferred sentencing until next month.
Prosecutor Owen Mullan said t the cocaine – including the stash h handed to Balfour – had a potential value of £189,900 with the ecstasy valued at £17,000.
