Taxi driver Charles Jackson jailed for storing drugs

A taxi driver who was caught storing cocaine and a mixing agent has been jailed for three years and four months.

Charles Jackson, 53, was caught with cocaine and benzocaine - with a combined value of £51,840 - at his home in Glasgow's Drumchapel area in May.

He admitted being concerned in the supply of drugs.

The High Court in Edinburgh heard he agreed to store the drugs after his taxi had to be taken off the road and he fell into debt to his dealers.
