Two men are facing prison terms over their parts in a £1.2m cocaine deal in the east end of Glasgow.

Ronald Caddock, 54, was caught shortly after handing over the drugs to 28-year-old James Dunn in the city's Tollcross area in April.

At the High Court in Glasgow, both men pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of cocaine.

Judge Lady Stacey adjourned the case until next next month and both men were remanded in custody.

The court heard how Caddock had travelled from Liverpool to hand over the cocaine to Dunn within the car park of the Orion Way pub in Tollcross on 10 April.

High purity

Caddock left his people carrier and handed a laptop bag to Dunn, who was sitting in his van.

Dunn then drove off, tailed by police, while Caddock went to a nearby McDonalds.

Caddock was arrested as he later left the restaurant while Dunn was stopped in the city's Carmyle area.

It later emerged that the cocaine found in the laptop bag had a purity of up to 81% with a potential street value of more than £1.2m.
