Dumfries heroin addict who turned to dealing jailed

A Dumfries heroin addict who turned to dealing to feed his habit has been jailed for a year.

Paul Millar, 33, of Deans Avenue, admitted being concerned in supplying the drug in the town between April and July last year.

Dumfries Sheriff Court heard how he was stopped on his bike and found to be in possession of several wraps of heroin.

Sheriff George Jamieson said that Millar had a criminal record and there was no alternative to custody.
