A man who tried to pay off a £16,000 drug debt by storing cocaine has been jailed for 44 months.

Alistair Williamson, 27, was caught with a quantity of the class A substance at his flat in Pollokshaws, Glasgow, on Hogmanay last year.

He later pleaded guilty to being involved in the supply of cocaine.

Sentencing him at the High Court in Edinburgh, judge Lord Brodie told Williamson that he had no other option but to impose a custodial sentence.

The judge said: "You have pleaded guilty to a very serious offence.

"The dealing of Class A drugs is a very real evil which does a great deal of evil to Scottish society.

"The court must respond appropriately. The disposal will be one of custody."
