Paul Berry jailed for drugs in Tunnocks Tea Cake bag

A man who was caught with £176,000 of heroin in a Tunnocks Tea Cake bag has been jailed for 40 months.

Paul Berry, 24, was stopped in Glasgow after police received information he had drugs in his Mitsubishi Lancer car.

The bag, which contained 10 knotted polythene bags with 2.5 kilos of the drug, was found in the boot.

Berry, from Cumbernauld, North Lanarkshire, admitted being concerned in the supply of the class A drug on 5 March this year.

At the High Court in Edinburgh, judge Lady Rae told Berry that a substantial amount of drugs was involved.

The judge said a background report prepared on him was a very good one, but given the nature of the offence she had no option but to jail him.

She told him he would have faced a five year prison sentence, but for his guilty plea.
